Abstract: We present results of the search for pulsating variable stars in the Magellanic Cloud fields covering the central parts of these galaxies. The data were collected during the second phase of Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment survey (OGLE-II) from 1997 to 2000. In total, several thousand pulsating stars (Cepheids, RR Lyr) were found in both Magellanic Clouds. The photometric data of all objects are available to the astronomical community from the OGLE Internet archive. We present basic properties of pulsating stars in the Magellanic Clouds including Period-Luminosity relations for Cepheids. We also discuss observational prospects for the pulsating star field in the ongoing third phase of the OGLE project (OGLE-III) which started in 2001.
