Notes: Articles in bold are articles that have been featured on the Main Page. The Wikipedia Project Pages are anomalies – not actual articles, but pages that were considered "brilliant prose" and were subsequently listed as "featured" when the featured article process began. Belgium, Fermi paradox, Madonna (entertainer) and Pashtuns were promoted and demoted twice, and are thus listed twice.
