The Singles 86>98 is a singles compilation album released in 1998 by Depeche Mode. It was released as a follow-up to the band's 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".

Apart from including a few non-album singles, the versions of many songs featured on these discs are the single mixes which often differed from the album versions. This is a must-have for hardcore DM fans as well as those just getting started. 38 tracks total including 'Enjoy The Silence', 'Just Can't Get Enough', 'People Are People', 'Personal Jesus', 'Get The Balance Right' and many more.
