The WFIRST-AFTA coronagraph will directly image exoplanets and disks around nearby stars, and obtain spectra. The
coronagraph has photometric bands covering about 400-1000 nm, and an integral field spectrometer with a resolution of
about 70. The range of sensitivity in angular separation from a star is about 0.1 to 0.6 arc-seconds. The limiting contrast
is about 10-9, and a goal of 10-10. The engineering development program is focused on low-order wavefront sensing and
control, coronagraph masks, coronagraph performance, speckle detection and suppression, post-processing algorithms,
an integral field spectrometer, and low-noise detectors. Progress and plans in these areas will be reviewed.
