Over its first five years it collected data for six public surveys, one of which is the near-infrared YJKs VISTA survey of the Magellanic Clouds system (VMC). This survey comprises the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), the Small Magellanic Cloud, the Magellanic Bridge connecting the two galaxies and two fields in the Magellanic Stream. The main goals of the VMC survey are the determination of the spatially-resolved star-formation history and the three-dimensional structure of the Magellanic system. The VMC survey is therefore designed to reach stars as faint as the oldest main sequence turn-off point and to constrain the mean magnitude of pulsating variables such as RR Lyrae stars and Cepheids. The VMC data are comprised of multi-epoch observations which are executed following specific time constraints. The first science results, aimed at assessing the scientific quality of the VMC data, include an overview of the distribution of stars in colour-magnitude and colour-colour diagrams, the detection of planetary nebulae and stellar clusters, and the Ks band light-curves of variable stars. The VMC survey represents a tremendous improvement, in spatial resolution and sensitivity, on previous panoramic observations of the Magellanic system in the near-infrared, providing a powerful complement to deep observations at other wavelengths. Description: The VISTA survey of the Magellanic Clouds system (VMC) survey is a homogeneous and uniform YJKs survey of  184deg^2^ across the Magellanic system. Observations were obtained with the VISTA telescope as part of the VISTA survey of the Magellanic Cloud system (VMC; ESO program 179.B-2003). This data release is based on the observa tions of twelve new VMC survey tiles LMC 3_5, 4_2, 4_3, 7_3, 9_3, SMC 4_3, 5_2, 5_4, BRI 2_8, 3_5, and STR 1_1, 2_1. Observations were acquired between November 2009 and August 2013. Acknowledging the VMC in publications: Please include the following acknowledgment in any published material that makes use of this data products: Based on observations made with ESO Telescopes at the La Silla or Paranal Observatories under programme ID 179.B-2003.
