The discography of English singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding consists of two studio albums, six extended plays, twelve singles (including two as a featured artist), four promotional singles and eighteen music videos.

Goulding released her first extended play, An Introduction to Ellie Goulding, after signing to record label Polydor in December 2009. This was then followed by the release of her debut album, Lights, which debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart in March 2010. The album spawned four singles: "Under the Sheets", "Starry Eyed", "Guns and Horses" and "The Writer", which reached number fifty-three, number four, number twenty-six and number nineteen on the UK Singles Chart, respectively. The album was re-released in November 2010 under the title Bright Lights and included seven new songs, one of which was a cover of Elton John's "Your Song" which became Goulding's highest-charting single to date, peaking at number two. The sixth single to be lifted from the album was "Lights", which peaked at number forty-nine in March 2011 in the UK whilst becoming her highest-charting single to date in the US and Canada.

Goulding's second studio album, Halcyon, was released in October 2012, peaking at number two in the UK and reaching the top ten in both Canada and the US. Its lead single, "Anything Could Happen", became Goulding's third top five hit in the UK when it peaked at number five upon release in September 2012. The track also became her first charting single in Australia (number sixteen) and second appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 (number forty-seven). Follow-up single "Figure 8" was released in December 2012, peaking at number thirty-three in the UK and number seven in New Zealand. Following usage on an ITV advert, "Explosions" was released as the album's third single, peaking at number thirteen in the UK. Goulding is also featured on Calvin Harris's song "I Need Your Love", which reached the top five in the UK in April 2013. "Burn" was released as the lead single from the reissue of Halcyon, titled Halcyon Days. The song earned Goulding her first UK number-one single, while reaching the top five in Ireland, Germany, and Switzerland, as well as the top ten in Australia and New Zealand.

Goulding has sold three million albums and ten million singles worldwide.[1]
