Singles 1968–1971 is a box set compilation of singles by the Rolling Stones spanning the years 1968 to 1971. Released in 2005 by ABKCO Records, who license the Rolling Stones' 1963–1970 recorded works, Singles 1968–1971 was the third of three successive volumes to commemorate their non-LP releases during this era.

While the set features faithful replicas of all individual single covers (even the CDs are reproduced in black), the set – and both of its predecessors – came under some criticism as to their necessity, especially as 1989's Singles Collection: The London Years already covered this material to satisfaction. Furthermore, the last half of this collection concentrates on post-contractual material from Metamorphosis and the 2003 "Sympathy for the Devil" remixes by The Neptunes. However, Singles 1968–1971 does manage to include a bonus DVD of visual material of four songs that stretch the entire decade of the 1960s.
