History and specifics
In the year 2266, celebrated Earth mathematician and pacifist Alfred Bleikoff, who had been cryogenically frozen in the 1990s, was revived aboard the USS Enterprise. His official reception was on Earth in front of 20,000 people in the Colosseum, where he gave a rousing speech. James T. Kirk, Spock, Leonard McCoy and Montgomery Scott were present, and observed that the speech was unusually compelling. Afterward, following a visit to Mount Rushmore National Memorial, Bleikoff began a worldwide campaign in the name of peace to have the planetary Earth defense screen dismantled. (TOS comic: "Prophet of Peace")
Later in 2266, the Colosseum collapsed as the result of a sort of voodoo attack. Count Dressler fired a laser beam at a papier-mâché recreation of Earth and struck its own Colosseum, which collapsed, causing the real one to collapse at the exact same time on Earth. (TOS comic: "The Voodoo Planet")
In 2376, Jake Sisko compared the buildings he saw in the ancient Bajoran city of Yyn to the Colosseum, although the buildings in Yyn were several thousand years older than the Colosseum and yet were in better condition. (DS9 - Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine novel: Bajor: Fragments and Omens)
