The EROS-2 project was designed to test the hypothesis that massive compact halo objects (the so-called ''machos'') could be a major component of the dark matter halo of the Milky Way galaxy. To this end, EROS-2 monitored millions of stars in the Magellanic clouds for microlensing events caused by such objects. (abridged)
