In MusicBrainz Terminology, a series is a sequence of separate Releases or Tracks with a common theme, artist, label or genre; usually prominent in the naming of branding of releases or tracks in the series. For release series, individual releases are often denoted with a volume or series number, but this is not necessary for them to be considered a series. A series can vary between two and hundreds of releases.

Catalogs of series

The following is a non-exhaustive set of series cataloged in the MB documentation prior to the implementation of the PartOfSeriesRelationshipType. When/if such a relationship is implemented, many, or all of these series below should be linked with this relationship and then removed from the documentation.

Prior to the AR implementation, the standard was that if a series had ten releases or more, to create a page like below and add to the ReleaseAnnotation an entry like Series/DreamDance using the below markup:
