Abstract: X-ray line searches are sensitive probes for many dark matter models, such as sterile neutrino dark matter in the nuMSM. I will review current status of the experimental efforts, including that of the tentative signal at 3.5 keV. Then I will discuss some recent progress with NuSTAR and its prospects in the near future. Finally I will talk about the idea of dark matter velocity spectroscopy, a powerful diagnostic tool for tentative dark matter line signals, which is achievable with high-resolution spectrometers.
