These will include several that are planetary in nature as well as many short-timescale microlensing events, which are potentially indicative of free-floating planets (FFPs). These satellite parallax measurements will in turn allow for the direct measurement of the masses of and distances to the lensing systems. In this article we provide an overview of the K2C9 space- and ground-based microlensing survey. Specifically, we detail the demographic questions that can be addressed by this program, including the frequency of FFPs and the Galactic distribution of exoplanets, the observational parameters of K2C9, and the array of resources dedicated to concurrent observations. Finally, we outline the avenues through which the larger community can become involved, and generally encourage participation in K2C9, which constitutes an important pathfinding mission and community exercise in anticipation of WFIRST. Description: The deadline for adding events to C9a was 2016 March 1 and for C9b it was 2016 April 25. In total, 34 and 61 ongoing events were added to the target list for C9a and C9b, respectively. Table 2 provides a list of the event names, coordinates, and baseline I-band magnitudes for all of these events, many of which were added to the target list for both halves of K2C9. This resulted in 70 unique events that were added to the target list and for which data were downlinked for at least one half of K2C9. File Summary:

Note (1): Events are named according to the following convention: Survey-Year-Field-Index, where the field designation "BLG" refers to the Galactic bulge. For events discovered by multiple surveys, the event is named according to which survey alerted it first. Note (2): Coordinates and magnitudes are taken from the OGLE Early Warning System (see Section 5.1). Note (3): This includes the flux of the source as well as any blended stars.
