The Lost Experience is an alternate reality game (ARG) designed by the writers and producers of Lost to engage fans and expand the storyline. The game was co-developed by three TV companies, America's ABC, Australia's Seven Network and the United Kingdom's Channel 4. On 24 April, the networks announced that the game would begin in the first week of May.
The first clue was released on different dates in different countries with the commonality of a phone number provided in a fake advertisement in episodes of Lost. The phone number directed the game player to the first website, and provided the password to solve the first of many clues.

Mistaken for clues
- There is a 12-pronged icon on persephone.thehansofoundation.org website which was confused as a clue. However, this is the default icon of the Plesk Control Panel Software used by the website itself and not a game clue - See http://persephone.thehansofoundation.org:443/ and http://www.swsoft.com/plesk/.
- There is a user login box in the far lower right corner of the main screen of thehansofoundation.org (next to the RSS button) requesting a username; this appears to be related to website maintenance.
