NASA and Roscosmossaid search-and-rescue teams were in contact with the crew and en route to the landing location.
They were to dock at the International Space Station six hours later, but the booster suffered engine failure minutes after the launch.
While the rocket would normally be carrying three people, the third space was instead used for cargo to be taken up to the space station.
The astronauts of the Soyuz MS-10 are said to have switched into "ballistic descent mode" once they were notified of the second stagebooster fault. An emergency landing protocol was initiated and their capsule landed in a field in Kazakhstan. Dzhezkazgan is about 450 kilometres northeast of Baikonur. William Harwood of CBSreports that the ISS crew was scheduled to return on December 13, though they have the ability to stay in orbit longer if required.
That would, in theory, push the time limit of crew's return to Earth to early January 2019, which is the sole limiting factor, said Dr John Logsdon, head of the Space Policy Institute at The George Washington University.
At this moment, there are no Soyuz spacecraft berthed at the orbiting science station.
The mission failure is stunning for the Soyuz rocket, which only had two launch failures prior to Thursday - one in 1975 and one in 1983. The crew experienced an intense re-entry, and landed in the wilderness close to the Chinese border.

Glitches found in Russia's Proton and Soyuz rockets in 2016 were traced to manufacturing flaws at the plant in Voronezh.
The crew members then initiated a "ballistic" trajectory that put Hague and Ovchinin under more than six times the force of gravity and put the capsule into a spin.
