We will present results of the CMS experiment from PbPb collisions at $srqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 2.76 TeV, probing quark and gluon matter at unprecedented values of energy density. The CMS apparatus provides calorimetry, muon and tracking systems covering a large range in pseudorapidity, complemented by a flexible two-level trigger system. This allows us to study the production of jets, photons, charged hadrons, quarkonia and vector bosons at large transverse momenta as a function of collision centrality. In addition, the large acceptance enables detailed studies of particle correlations in heavy ion collisions.
