Prospekt Mira (Russian: Проспект Мира) is a station on the Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya Line of the Moscow Metro. It was designed by V. Lebedev and P. Shteller and opened on 1 May 1958.

Between 1958 and until 1971 the station was a terminus of the Rizhskaya Line.
The entrance to the station is located on the west side of Prospekt Mira (north of Protopopovsky Pereulok) in the ground floor of the Metro's central control building.
