The identity of the dark matter is perhaps the most pressing question confronting particle physics, and is likely to transform our understanding of fundamental particles. A wide array of theoretical ideas exist, though there is currently little experimental guidance as to which are correct. I will review the current status of the leading candidates to play the role of the dark matter, particularly in light of experimental searches, and offer some perspective as to their prospects in the future.
