The 2021 Colorado Rockies season was the franchise's 29th in Major League Baseball. It is their 27th season at Coors Field. On April 5, 2021, MLB announced that Coors Field would host the 2021 MLB All-Star Game after it was announced that Truist Park in Atlanta, Georgia would not host it due to MLB's opposition on Georgia's new voting laws. On April 26, Rockies executive vice president/general manager Jeff Bridich resigned.[1] The Rockies announced that executive vice president/chief operationg officer Greg Feasel would serve as the team's president/chief operating officer for the remainder of the season,[2] and that Bill Schmidt would serve as interim general manager.[3]

The Rockies started the season with a 6–33 record on the road, which is the worst start on the road in the live-ball era. They split or lost 16 consecutive road series between September 2020 and July 2021, a new low for a team thought by writers to have had a disadvantage when playing in lower altitude when away from Coors Field since its inception.[4]

In the 2020 Rule 5 Draft, the Rockies selected pitcher Jordan Sheffield from the Los Angeles Dodgers with the 7th pick.[21] No Rockies players were selected in the major league phase of the draft.
