The discography of A-ha, a Norwegian synthpop/rock band, consists of ten studio albums, ten compilation albums, five extended plays (EP), and thirty-nine singles. This list does not include solo material or other projects recorded by A-ha band members.

A-ha was formed in 1982 by vocalist Morten Harket, guitarist Paul Waaktaar-Savoy, and keyboardist Magne Furuholmen. The band moved to London and eventually signed with Warner Bros. Records. They released their debut album Hunting High and Low in 1985, which remains their biggest success and contained their international break-through hit "Take On Me". A string of hit singles followed, including the 1987 James Bond theme "The Living Daylights". By 1993, the band had released five studio albums before going on hiatus the following year.

After a performance at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in 1998, the band returned to the studio and recorded a new album, Minor Earth Major Sky, which was released in 2000. Their next album, Lifelines was released in 2002, but would be their final album for Warner Bros. After signing to Polydor (part of Universal Music), further new albums were released in 2005 and 2009, after which the band decided to break up. However, they reformed for yet another new album, Cast in Steel, which was released in 2015. Morten Harket, Magne Furuholmen and Paal Waaktaar-Savoy have been awarded Spellemannprisen nine times;[citation needed] Trough 2009 A-ha had sold over 100 million records worldwide.[1][2] The band has released ten studio albums, four compilations and two live albums.[2]

In their native Norway, eight of the band's studio albums and eight of their singles have reached number one.
