We collected data from various instruments/telescopes in X-ray, ultra-violet, optical and near-infrared bands and determined the shapes of the afterglow early-time light curves. We studied the overall temporal behaviour and the spectral energy distributions from early to late times. The ultra-violet, optical, and near-infrared light curves can be modelled with a single power-law component between 200 and 2x104s after the burst event. The X-ray light curve shows a canonical steep-shallow-steep behaviour, typical of long gamma-ray bursts. At early times a colour variation is observed in the ultra-violet/optical bands, while at very late times a hint of a re-brightening is visible. The observed early time colour change can be explained as a variation in the intrinsic optical spectral index, rather than an evolution of the optical extinction. Description: Photometric data of GRB120327A are presented. Magnitudes are in the Vega system unless for griz filters that are in the AB system, and they are all not corrected for Galactic absorption. Errors are at 1sigma level.
