    XMPlay can do that (Un4seen Developments - 2MIDI / BASS / MID2XM / MO3 / XM-EXE / XMPlay).
    Install the player and add the RAR archive plugin to your plugins (and any other you want).
    The links for it can be found on the left.

    Just in case: RAR is an archive format, like zip so the 'normal' way is to extract the archive and play the music files within it (assuming there are music files in that archive).

    .rar files aren't music files. it's simply for archiving multiple files into a package just like a ZIP file. just download and install a .rar extractor like WinZip or Stuffit Expander

    +1 .rar (RAR) is a file format for data compression, similar to ZIP files.
