Yes, Virginia - you can shoot Using Filters in B&W Photography with the M Monochrom!

I assume trichrome processing will work if you want color from this camera...Everyone buy those red, green and blue filters!

The most popular filters for use on the Leica M Monochrom include yellow, orange and even red - with increasing effect, respectively.

Have a yellow/green or orange filter on my lenses most of the time.

Yeah, I'm usually using at least a yellow myself, though I like to go more extreme whenever possible, with an orange. :)

A red filter is definitely extreme, but I like the look - especially with exaggerated grain and contrast.

Just make sure you buy them with the same luminosity. It will save in photoshop time.

A dark red filter, with ISO10000... Yummy - A surrealists dream.

The only difficulty is the slight focus shift, but I use it on a 21mm, hip shot for street.
