The discography of American indie pop band Foster the People consists of two studio albums, three extended plays, 10 singles and eight music videos.

Mark Foster founded the band in 2009 after spending several years in Los Angeles as a struggling musician and working as a commercial jingle writer. After Foster's song "Pumped Up Kicks" became a viral success in 2010, the group was signed to Columbia Records' imprint Startime International and gained a fanbase through small club shows and appearances at the music festivals Coachella and South by Southwest. After releasing their debut album Torches in May 2011, "Pumped Up Kicks" became a crossover hit on commercial radio, reaching number one on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart and number three on the Billboard Hot 100,[1][2] while also becoming successful in international markets. The success of "Pumped Up Kicks" also propelled Torches to number eight on the Billboard 200 chart. Four other singles were released from the album, including "Helena Beat", "Don't Stop (Color on the Walls)" and "Houdini", all of which entered the Alternative Songs chart.[1]
