World record progression 4 × 200 metres freestyle relay

This is a history of the progression of the World Record for the Swimming event of the 4x200 Freestyle Relay. It is a listing of the fastest-time-ever swum in the event, in both long course (50m) and short course (25m) swimming pool. These records are maintained/recognized by FINA, which oversees international competitive swimming and Aquatics.

The long course records are historically older than the short course records; the latter having only been recognized since the early 1990s.

In this relay, each team is made up of 4 swimmers, each of whom swims a 200 freestyle.
