This report describes the Forward Physics plans of the LHC experiments. The physics topics include a measurement of the total pp cross section (and luminosity) with a 1% precision, elastic pp scattering in the momentum transfer squared range 10 -3 < |t| < 10 GeV 2 , and both soft and hard diffractive phenomena including inclusive and exclusive Double Pomeron Exchange and leading particle and energy flow in the forward direction.
