An XMP file is a markers package used by XMind, a mind mapping and brainstorming application. It contains one or more markers, which are icons used to denote special meaning such as the urgency of a task or what people are involved. Some of the marker categories include faces, task progress, task priority, arrows, symbols, and month.

While XMind comes with default XMP files you can import your own images into the application for customized markers. You can access the import and export functionality by selecting the "View Menu" icon when the Markers window is open.
