The Seattle Mariners' 2001 season was the 25th since the franchise's inception. The season saw the Mariners obtain a record of 116–46, tying the Major League record for wins set by the Chicago Cubs in 1906 and setting the record for wins by an American League team. They led the majors in both runs scored and fewest runs allowed.

Winning the American League West division, the 2001 season marked the only time the Mariners reached the postseason in consecutive seasons to date, following their wild card berth in 2000. The team went on to defeat the Cleveland Indians in the American League Division Series, but fell to the New York Yankees in five games in the American League Championship Series.

The 2001 season was also notable for the Major League debut of star Japanese outfielder Ichiro Suzuki, who led the league in batting average and won the AL MVP, as well as the Mariners hosting their second All-Star Game. To date, it is also the last season where the Mariners reached the postseason.
