The top quark is the most massive known fundamental constituent of matter. Its unexplained large mass suggests an important connection to
the still mysterious electroweak symmetry breaking mechanism and it is the basis of a rich set of links to possible new particle and interactions
that could appear at the LHC by often modifying the production and decay of top quarks. 
Unprecedentedly abundant top quark production in proton proton collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is now opening doors on 
increasingly precise measurements of top quark properties, its connection to the newly discovered Higgs boson and on frontier studies on 
top quark-related physics beyond the standard model at new scales of energy and distance. The illustration of selected recent results from 
the LHC pp collisions at 7 and 8 TeV center-of-mass energies will be coupled with performance and prospects studies to discuss expectations 
and areas of improvements for the mentioned topics in the analysis of the forthcoming data to be collected in LHC 13 TeV proton-proton 
collisions starting in 2015.
