Abstract
We present plans for instrumentation on the European Extremely Large Telescope. ESO is working with its community of astronomers and instrument builders to develop the E-ELT Instrumentation Roadmap. The roadmap is a timeline of the steps towards the full instrument programme, from specification of the scientific requirements, via a technology development phase, to selection of the instrument concepts. Key goals are to be flexibile to new ideas and to ensure the timely, on-budget delivery of instruments that meet the community's scientific needs. The result is an exciting programme of seven instruments planned over the first decade of the telescope construction phase.
