The Spanish East Indies (Indias orientales españolas) were the Spanish territories in Asia-Pacific from 1565 until 1898. It comprised the Philippine Islands, Guam and the Mariana Islands, the Caroline Islands (Palau and the Federated States of Micronesia), parts of Formosa (Taiwan) and the Moluccas. Cebu was the first seat of government, later transferred to Manila. From 1565 to 1821 these territories, together with the Spanish West Indies, were administered through the Viceroyalty of New Spain based in Mexico City.

The King of Spain traditionally styled himself "King of the East and West Indies" (Rey de las Indias orientales y occidentales). After Mexican independence, they were ruled directly from Madrid.

Administrative affairs of the Spanish East Indies were handled by the Captaincy General of the Philippines and the Real Audiencia of Manila. Following the Spanish–American War in 1898, most of the islands were occupied by the United States while the remaining territories were sold to Germany during the German–Spanish Treaty of 1899.
