An overview is given of the diffraction and two families of discrete self-trapped wavepackets: the in-phase and the staggered 2D lattice solitons. These are the first observations of 2D lattice solitons in any physical system. Votex solitons as well as recent work on vector and incoherent solitons in lattices are outlined. General properties of these structures, analogies with other disciplines and potential applications are discussed.
