Cone spherical metrics are conformal metrics with constant curvature one with finitely many conical singularities on compact Riemann surfaces. The existence problem of such metrics has been open over twenty years. I will introduce the respectful audience some progress on this problem joint with Qing Chen, Xuemiao Chen, Yiran Cheng, Bo Li, Lingguang Li, Santai Qu, Jijian Song, Yingyi Wu and Xuwen Zhu.
