Can somebody help me understand the proper difference between the Median and IQR?

This is what I believe about the Median and IQR:
For me, it seems that the median is created by following Q3-Q1. And that the IQR is 25%.

The median is the middle number in the set when all the numbers are in order.
median = Q2

The interquartile range is the distance between the lower and upper quartile
IQR = Q3 - Q1
