"The Staircase (Mystery)" is the second single released by British rock band Siouxsie and the Banshees. Issued in the UK by Polydor Records in 1979, the track was written by Banshees members Siouxsie Sioux, Steven Severin, John McKay and Kenny Morris and produced by Nils Stevenson. The B-side of the single is a cover of the T. Rex song "20th Century Boy"

Melody Maker hailed the single and wrote: "The Banshees have been able to come up with a couple of slices of excellent music for their singles. The Staircase hasn't anywhere near the commercial potential or immediacy of "Hong Kong Garden", but nevertheless it's a great song. A sinister almost mesmerising tune, dominated by Siouxsie's unorthodox vocals - it grows and matures with each play."

Although their debut album The Scream had already been released, "The Staircase (Mystery)" did not appear on it. Released as a stand-alone single, it became the group's second top 40 hit, peaking at number 24 in the UK singles chart.
