Possibility to use high intensity secondary beams at the SPS M2 beam line in combination with the world's largest polarized target, large liquide hydrogen and various nuclear targets create a unique opportunity for universal experimental facility to study previously unexplored aspects of meson and nucleon structure, QCD dynamics and hadron spectroscopy. High intensity hadron (pion dominated) beams already made COMPASS the world leading facility for hadron spectroscopy and hadron structure study through Drell-Yan production of di-muon pairs. High intensity muon beams, previously used for unique semi-inclusive and exclusive hard scattering programs, make possible proton radius measurement in muon-proton elastic scattering and further development of the semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering program. In this talk recent results from COMPASS will be reviewed and short term plans will be discussed.
