East Nanjing Road Station (simplified Chinese: 南京东路站; traditional Chinese: 南京東路站; pinyin: Nánjīng Dōng Lù Zhàn) is an interchange station between Lines 2 and 10 on the Shanghai Metro. It is located in Huangpu District, under the intersection of Nanjing Road (E.) and Henan Road (M.) in the city center of Shanghai.

Before October 2006, it was known as Middle Henan Road station. The name was changed according to the new convention to name metro stations after famous streets or sights nearby rather than the vertical street neighbouring the station, making it easier for visitors to find these places.

Old sign showing the former name of the station, Middle Henan Road, used before October 2006.

The Line 10 section of the station opened in April 2010.
