Progress M-58, identified by NASA as Progress 23 or 23P, was a Progress spacecraft used to resupply the International Space Station. It was a Progress-M 11F615A55 spacecraft, with the serial number 358.

Progress M-58 was launched by a Soyuz-U carrier rocket from Site 1/5 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome. Launch occurred at 13:40:36 GMT on 23 October 2006.[1] The spacecraft docked with the Aft port of the Zvezda module at 14:28:46 GMT on 26 October.[2] During docking a problem with the spacecraft's telemetry system produced a false reading that an antenna associated with its Kurs docking system had failed to retract, complicating the docking procedure.[3] It remained docked for five months before undocking at 18:11 GMT on 27 March 2007.[4] It was deorbited at 22:44:30 GMT on 27 March 2007.[4] The spacecraft burned up in the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean, with any remaining debris landing in the ocean at around 23:30:22 GMT.[5][6]

Progress M-58 carried supplies to the International Space Station, including food, water and oxygen for the crew and equipment for conducting scientific research.
