The status of the TOTEM experiment is described as well as the prospects for the measurements in the 2010 runs. The primary goal of TOTEM is the measurement of the total p-p cross section, using a method independent of the luminosity. A final accuracy of 1% is expected with dedicated β∗ = 1540m runs (5% resolution with β∗ = 90m, more easily achievable in the early runs). TOTEM has installed the T2 telescope and fully equipped Roman Pots in the 220m stations during the last winter shutdown and is taking the first p-p collision data with these detectors. T1 is finalizing the commissioning on beam and will be ready for the first opportunity of installation. During 2010 the collaboration will carry on a full commissioning of all detectors and will start a physics program compatible with the low β∗ optics provided by the machine.
