The MoEDAL experiment (Monopole and Exotics Detector at the LHC) is designed to directly search for magnetic monopoles and other highly-ionising stable or metastable particles arising in theoretical scenarios beyond the Standard Model. Its physics goals are accomplished by the deployment of plastic nuclear track detectors combined with trapping volumes for capturing charged highly-ionising particles and TimePix pixel devices for monitoring. This paper is an overview of the MoEDAL physics reach, which is largely complementary to the programs of the large multi-purpose LHC detectors ATLAS and CMS.
