After decades of preparation, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN , Geneva recorded its first high energy proton-proton collisions in March of this year. A major commissioning and calibration programme has been under way since, which has demonstrated excellent performance both of the LHC accelerator and of the detectors. The experimental collaborations have not only made early measurements of Standard Model processes, their research has moved into terra incognita, with recent publications of searches for particles beyond those of the Standard Model. In this seminar I will summarize the current status of the experiments, outline their near-term plans, and discuss how the experimental results can later be used to constrain theoretical models, particularly those models containing heavy undetectable particles – i.e. dark matter candidates.
