Magnetic massive and intermediate-mass stars constitute a separate population whose properties are still not fully understood. Increasing the sample of known objects of this type would help answer fundamental questions regarding the origins and characteristics of their magnetic fields. The MOBSTER Collaboration seeks to identify candidate magnetic A, B and O stars and explore the incidence and origins of photometric rotational modulation using high-precision photometry from the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) mission. In this contribution, we present an overview of our methods and planned targeted spectropolarimetric follow-up surveys. %This document serves both as a documentation and as a template for writing %articles.
