Abstract

The CoRoT space telescope is detecting planets with the transit method for more than four years. Its tally includes hot jupiter planets with orbital periods up to 95 days but also the first Super-Earth, CoRoT-7b, whose density is similar to the Earth's one, as well as close-in brown dwarfs. We review the status of the CoRoT/Exoplanet program, including some elements of the multi step strategy of complementary observations. We then present some of the CoRoT exoplanetary systems and how they widen the range of properties of the close-in low mass population and contribute to our understanding of the properties of planets.
