Staircase Infinities is a studio EP by British progressive rock band Porcupine Tree, first released in December 1994 as a limited 2,000-copy 10" vinyl by Lazy Eye and reissued on CD by Blueprint in the UK in October 1995. It contains outtakes from the Up the Downstair sessions.

Originally, Staircase Infinities was intended to be released on a double album version of Up the Downstair but was not completed in time. Up the Downstair was therefore released as a single album in 1993 but was reissued in an expanded version in 2005 (with live drums by Gavin Harrison), this time including the EP Staircase Infinities.
