The following is a timeline for the Pirates of the Caribbean film series and its spin off stories (comics, novels, video games, short film, etc).

The films are in bold black text. The films feature time coding since sections of the films occur years before or after the majority of the film. The short film "Wedlocked" is in regular black text.

 

The comic books (full length issues by Joe Books) are in italicized bold green text. The comic shorts that were printed in Disney Adventures magazine are in regular italicized green text (including some tales released only in the Russian version of the magazine, which are marked as such), as well as the one that was printed in the On Stranger Tides movie magazine. There may be another comic printed in the first issue of the On Stranger Tides souvenir magazine, but I haven't been able to find it online for sale so can't verify.

 

The novels are in bold blue italicized text, while the prose short stories are in regular blue italicized text. There were four children's books also released (The Missing Pirate, Ghost Ship, Escape from Davy Jones, and A Storm at Sea) which are in regular blue italicized text.

 

The video games are in red bold text. The video game adaptations of the films aren't included since they tell same story as the films, but the video games which feature original stories are listed. The consoles the games are available for are listed beside them in parentheses. The PotC PC video game: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pirates_of_the_Caribbean_(video_game) is considered non-canon to the timeline, for a couple reasons. 1.) It was originally developed as a completely separate game called Sea Dogs II, which had nothing to do with the PotC franchise, and with the Black Pearl added later to tie into film and the game's name changed to PotC. 2.) The PotC PC game's events last from 1630-1631, and the Black Pearl is seen/encountered in the game, complete with cursed crew, but this doesn't work with timeline established by the films (On Stranger Tides is said to occur around 1750) since the Black Pearl's crew wasn't cursed until around 1724 in the film timeline (thirteen years before Curse of the Black Pearl). Thus, that game is considered non-canon.
