An overview of the ATLAS results from Pb+Pb collisions at √sNN = 2.76 TeV will be presented. The results for hard probes include both single jet and di-jet measurements, W and Z bosons, photons, and high pT charged tracks. Taken together these results provide a compelling picture of the interaction of hard particles in the dense QCD medium. Additionally, ATLAS has measured properties of the bulk particle production including charged particle multiplicity and extensive measurements of the azimuthal particle distributions and correlations. Results shown will be from the ∼ 10 inverse µb−1 of minimum bias recorded in the 2010 LHC heavy ion run, as well as from ∼ 0.15 nb−1 sampled in the 2011 LHC heavy ion run.
