La discografia di Elvis Presley inizia il 19 luglio 1954, con la pubblicazione del suo primo singolo ufficiale, e termina nel febbraio 1978. L'ultimo album di Presley, Elvis in Concert, e i due ultimi singoli My Way e Unchained Melody, anche se pubblicati postumi dopo la sua morte, vengono considerati parte integrante della sua discografia "in vita" poiché tutti progetti approvati dallo stesso Elvis. Tutte le altre numerose pubblicazioni postume, raccolte, greatest hits, ristampe, box set, ecc... sono presi in esame nella sezione relativa alla discografia postuma. Senza includere le varie ristampe e nuove versioni di album vecchi, durante il periodo 1954-1978 Presley pubblicò 102 singoli, 30 singoli EP, 70 album per la RCA Records, 4 album per l'etichetta a basso budget della Pickwick, e 5 singoli per la Sun Records.
