The discography of Death Cab for Cutie consists of six studio albums, five extended plays (EPs), a demo tape, a digital album, fourteen singles, eight music videos, and two DVDs. Death Cab for Cutie is an American indie pop group from Bellingham, Washington and was formed in 1997 by Ben Gibbard as a side project from Pinwheel. After releasing a demo tape, he added guitarist Chris Walla, bassist Nick Harmer, and drummer Nathan Good to the band. Death Cab signed to Barsuk Records and released four extended plays (EPs) and four studio albums through the label.[1] The fourth album, Transatlanticism, reached number 97 on the Billboard 200 and was eventually certified gold in the United States.[2][3] The group also issued nine singles and a demo tape through Barsuk.[1]

In 2004, the band signed with Atlantic Records, a subsidiary of the Warner Music Group. Their first release on the label, Plans, earned a platinum certification and charted at number four in the US.[3] The single "Soul Meets Body" was the band's first to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. Death Cab for Cutie topped the US and Canadian album charts with Narrow Stairs (2008), with help from the Hot 100 single "I Will Possess Your Heart".[2] Both Plans and Narrow Stairs received critical praise and were nominated for Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album. Other projects with Atlantic include a downloadable digital album, two DVDs, and five singles.[4]

The discography does not include material that members of Death Cab for Cutie recorded with The Postal Service, ¡All-Time Quarterback! or other side projects.
