The locations of the fields are defined in Figure 1 and Table 1 of the paper. In each of the fields, tens of thousands of point sources were detected. The catalogue is split up into seven tables, according to the different fields. Table 5 in the paper gives ten lines of the band-merged catalogue of the Bulge N1 field as an example. In the first paper based on this data set, we present the observations, data reduction, the final catalogue of sources, and a detailed comparison to previous mid-IR surveys of the Galactic bulge, as well as to theoretical isochrones. We find in general good agreement with other surveys and the isochrones, supporting the high quality of our catalogue. Besides a catalogue for each field, fits files of the IRAC and MIPS mosaics are presented, too. As a cautionary note for the users, we would like to add that the least reliable sources in our catalogue are those with detection in only one IRAC band and no MIPS detection, and with (i) either no 2MASS and DENIS counterpart (depending on the field, between 3.1% and 6.7% of the sources), or (ii) a DENIS and 2MASS counterpart at a distance between 1.6 and 3 arcseconds (depending on the field, between 0.4% and 1.0% of the sources).
