We briefly review applications of string theory to cosmology, from primordial times to present-day accelerated expansion. Topics covered will include string inflation, and alternatives, the CMB,
gravitational waves, cosmological moduli, dark matter candidates such as axions and primordial black holes, dark energy candidates such as de Sitter vacua and quintessence and the string landscape vs the swampland.
