Swedish DJ Avicii had four singles in the top 10 during 2013, including two number-ones. "I Could Be the One", which spent a week at number-one in February, was a collaboration with Nicky Romero. "Wake Me Up", which featured uncredited vocals from Aloe Blacc, became the year's third best selling single, spending three weeks at number-one and lasting 11 weeks in the top 10.

The UK Singles Chart is one of many music charts compiled by the Official Charts Company that calculates the best-selling singles of the week in the United Kingdom.[1] Since 2004 the chart has been based on the sales of both physical singles and digital downloads, with airplay figures excluded from the official chart.[2][3] This list shows singles that peaked in the Top 10 of the UK Singles Chart during 2013, as well as singles which peaked in 2012 and 2014 but were in the top 10 in 2013. The entry date is when the single appeared in the top 10 for the first time (week ending, as published by the Official Charts Company, which is six days after the chart is announced).

One-hundred and fifty-two singles were in the top ten in 2013. Ten singles from 2012 remained in the top 10 for several weeks at the beginning of the year, "Happy" by Pharrell Williams and "Trumpets" by Jason Derulo were released in 2013 but did not reach their peak until 2014. "Scream & Shout" by Britney Spears & will.i.am and "I Knew You Were Trouble" by Taylor Swift were the singles from 2013 to reach their peak in 2014. Forty-seven artists scored multiple entries in the top 10 in 2013. Bastille, John Newman, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Union J and The Vamps were among the many artists who achieved their first UK charting top 10 single in 2013.

"Impossible" by British singer-songwriter and X Factor series 9 winner James Arthur returned to number-one for the first two weeks of the 2013, giving the single a total of three weeks on top of the chart. It had vacated the top spot for one week as The Justice Collective secured the 2012 Christmas number-one with "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother", a charity single in aid of the Hillsborough Disaster. The first new number-one single of the year was "Scream & Shout" by American singers Britney Spears & will.i.am. Overall, thirty different singles peaked at number-one in 2013, with Avicii, Miley Cyrus and Pharrell Williams (2) having the joint most singles hit that position.
