The latest results obtained by the EDELWEISS experiment using three heat-and-ionisation 320 g germanium bolometers are presented. EDELWEISS is presently the most sensitive WIMP direct detection experiment for all WIMP mass compatible with accelerator constraints. The status and main characteristics of EDELWEISS-II setup, involving in a first stage 28 germanium bolometers, and able to accommodate more than 100 detectors, are presented.
