Kosmo! (short for Cosmopolitan; Malay: Kosmopolitan) is a Malay language compact format newspaper in Malaysia owned by Utusan Melayu (Malaysia) Berhad. It is available in Malaysia at most newsstands.

It was launched on 30 August 2004 by Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. Kosmo! existed when the public was in a desperate need of a newspaper that could be easily read and carried. This newspaper suits the taste of Malaysians who are mostly busy with their daily matters. All the sections in this newspaper use an exclamation mark (!).

Formerly, Kosmo! was sold in Malaysia at a price of 80 cents daily excluding Sundays, when it was sold at RM 1.00 under a different name, that is Kosmo Ahad.However, by April 2007, Kosmo! priced at RM1.00 per day, while on Sundays it is sold at RM1.20.
