"The Singles 86>98" is a singles compilation album released in 1998 by Depeche Mode. It was released as a follow-up to the bands previous compilation, "The Singles 81>85", which was also re-released in the same year. The compilation covers the band's 7-inch single releases spanning five studio albums (from 1986's "Black Celebration" to 1997's "Ultra"), as well as including the band's 1998 stand-alone single "Only When I Lose Myself". Also included is "Little 15" (from "Music for the Masses", released in Europe, and the live version of "Everything Counts" (from the live album "101") which was released as a single in 1989. All tracks on "The Singles 86>98" were newly remastered, as was the case with the re-release of "The Singles 81>85".

The four-month Singles Tour that followed marked the first time Depeche Mode had toured since the 1993-94 Devotional/Exotic Tour (they had declined to tour to support "Ultra" a year earlier, instead they only made a few shows with a small number of songs).

As of April 2006, "The Singles 86>98" has sold 562,000 units in the U.S. (double albums count as two units), achieving platinum status.
