An upper bound sieve for rational points on suitable varieties is developed, together with applications to counting rational points in thin sets, to local solubility in families, and to the notion of ``friable'' rational points with respect to divisors. In the special case of quadrics, sharper estimates are obtained by developing a version of the Selberg sieve for rational points.
