The Beatles' Million Sellers was an EP by the Beatles, released 6 December 1965. The EP was only released in mono with the catalogue number Parlophone GEP 8946. It was also released in New Zealand.[2] The EP consists of songs released by the Beatles, that sold over 1 million copies each, the highest being She Loves You, which sold 1.89 million copies.

All four tracks had previously been #1 hit singles in the UK chart and apart from Can't Buy Me Love had not appeared on any previous studio album so the EP effectively served both as a catch-up for new listeners as well as being the nearest thing to a greatest album the group's homeland had seen up to this point. The band's first UK compilation album A Collection of Beatles Oldies would be released in December of the following year.
