The CMS silicon tracker went through a series of improvements during the first LHC long shutdown to prepare for the LHC Run II challenge. The startup conditions at 13 TeV for both subdetectors will be summarised, including specifics for 50ns and 25ns operations and improvements in calibrations which were developed during 2013 and 2014. Early LHC Run II performance of the CMS Pixel and Strip Silicon Tracker will be presented together with the expected performance at high pile-up.
