The last decade has seen immense world wide activity in the discovery and characterisation of extrasolar planets. Starting from the radial velocity surveys, the UK’s world leading WASP project and the CoRoT and Kepler space missions, we will review the current state of knowledge emphasising our understanding of habitable zone planets. We will look forward to upcoming experiments and in particular PLATO that will be transformational to our knowledge of rocky planets in the habitable zones of solar type stars.
