This is the discography of Canadian musician, singer, songwriter and pianist, Sarah McLachlan. Her debut album, Touch was released in 1988 and included first singles: "Vox", "Steaming" and "Ben's Song". The album charted in Canada and the United States and was certified platinum in Canada and gold in the US. The next album, Solace was issued in 1991. It peaked at number twenty in Canada and was certified double platinum there. Solace also charted in the US, where it was certified gold. It featured three singles: "The Path of Thorns (Terms)", "Into the Fire" and "Drawn to the Rhythm". The third studio album, Fumbling Towards Ecstasy (1993) became McLachlan's mainstream breakthrough album in Canada and the United States. It peaked at number five in Canada and number fifty on the US Billboard 200, and was certified 5× platinum in Canada and 3× platinum in the US. "Possession" and "Good Enough" became McLachlan's first singles to chart on the US Billboard Hot 100. "Good Enough" also became her first top ten hit in Canada, reaching number nine. At the 37th Annual Grammy Awards, Fumbling Towards Ecstasy was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Performance.

In 1997, McLachlan released her most successful album to date, Surfacing. It topped the chart in Canada and reached number two in the United States, and also charted in various countries around the world. Surfacing was certified diamond in Canada for selling over one million copies, 8× platinum in the US for selling eight million copies, and gold in other countries. Surfacing featured the hit singles: "Building a Mystery", "Sweet Surrender", "Adia" and "Angel". All singles charted inside top ten in Canada, including number one for "Building a Mystery". Also all singles charted on the Billboard Hot 100, and two of them became McLachlan's first top ten hits: "Adia" at number three and "Angel" at number four. Both, "Adia" and "Angel" also became hits around the world. At the 40th Annual Grammy Awards, "Building a Mystery" won a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and "Last Dance" from Surfacing won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance. Surfacing was also nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Album. At the 41st Annual Grammy Awards, "Adia" was nominated for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.

McLachlan's 1999 live album, Mirrorball was also very successful. It topped the chart in Canada and reached number three in the US. It was certified 5× platinum in Canada and 3× platinum in the US. McLachlan's 1995 song, "I Will Remember You" now in live version was released as the lead single from Mirrorball. In 1995, the song already reached number ten in Canada and number sixty-five on the Billboard Hot 100. This new live version reached number ten in Canada again but achieved a new peak on the Billboard Hot 100 at number fourteen, solely on airplay. At the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards, "I Will Remember You" (Live) won a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, Mirrorball was nominated for Best Pop Album and "Possession" (Live) was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. "Silence" by Delerium featuring McLachlan became one of the greatest trance songs of all time. The original version, released as a single in 1999, was remixed many times over the years to a great success on the charts. "Silence" topped the US Dance Club Songs and reached number one in Ireland. It also peaked at number two in Belgium, number three in the United Kingdom, number five in Canada, number six in Australia, number seven in the Netherlands, and charted in many other countries.

In 2003, McLachlan returned to public life with her fifth studio album, Afterglow. It topped the chart in Canada, reached number two in the US and charted in many countries around the world. Afterglow was certified 5× platinum in Canada, 2× platinum in the US, and gold in other countries. At the 46th Annual Grammy Awards, "Fallen" from Afterglow was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, and at the 47th Annual Grammy Awards, Afterglow was nominated for the Best Pop Vocal Album. At the 48th Annual Grammy Awards, Afterglow's "World on Fire" music video received the Grammy Award for Best Short Form Music Video. In 2006, McLachlan released her first Christmas album, Wintersong. It peaked at number one in Canada and number seven in the US, and was certified 3× platinum in Canada and platinum in the US.
