Modern cosmology relies on two fundamental pillars: General Relativity and the cosmological principle. The latter states that the Universe is homogenous and isotropic on cosmological scales. This allows the construction of a simple standard model of cosmology: the ΛCDM model.

I will discuss its main protagonists and how we can use different astrophysical and cosmological observations to test gravity and cosmological models. Special emphasis will be put on the new and exciting channel of gravitational waves measurements.
