Videos were made for the songs "2 Minutes to Midnight" and "Aces High."

This album was also released as a Picture Disc.

if someone were to look carefully on the hieroglyphics on the pyramids, they'll see "encoded" the words "Bollocks", "Indiana Jones was here" and "Wot, no Guinness?"

The 1995 reissue comes with a Bonus CD with the following track list:
01 - Rainbow's Gold (Beckett cover) (04:56)
02 - Mission From Harry (06:42)
03 - King of Twilight (Nektar cover) (04:52)
04 - The Number Of The Beast (Live 18.12.1983 in Dortmund, Germany) (04:58)

The 1998 remaster version contains a special enhanced CD-ROM multimedia section with videos, exclusive photo galleries, biographies, internet links plus a deluxe 24 page colour booklet with full lyrics, Eddie art and photos.

On the 1998 re-issue of Powerslave, tracks 6 and 7 had different track lengths. Track 6 was 5:20 instead of 5:00 and track 7 was 6:47 instead of 7:07, due to the ambient intro of "Powerslave" being added to the end of "Back In The Village" instead of the beginning of Powerslave.
