Heavy flavour and quarkonium are among the most important observables for the study of the properties of the Quark-Gluon Plasma produced in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions. At the LHC, thanks to their abundance, much larger than at lower-energy facilities, and to the extremely sophisticated experimental techniques used for their detection, their production can be measured with unprecedented accuracy. They represent therefore an ideal challenge for the various theoretical approaches developed in recent years.In this colloquium I will review the main results obtained by the LHC experiments in the study of Pb-Pb collisions at sqrt(s_NN)=2.76 TeV and shortly discuss the short and medium-term physics prospects
