In this volume, we proudly present a special feature on science results from the data that ESA Planck mission gathered over its first 15 months and which ESA and the Planck Collaboration released in March 2013. This collection of 31 articles presents the initial scientific results extracted from this first Planck dataset, which measures the cosmic microwave background (CMB) with the highest accuracy to date. It provides major new advances in different domains of cosmology and astrophysics. We thank Jan Tauber and thePlanck Science Team for coordinating this special feature.
