We can se files with MP# extension. Is MP3 a container also, or it is a codec alone?

If its a codec alone, then how can we play and have some meta information in the mp3 files?

I think the definition of a container (m4a, wav, aiff, etc) is that it should be able to contain different audio formats. Mp3 (if you ignore the mp3 surround distraction), only holds mp3.
