The XEUS (X-ray Evolving Universe Spectroscopy) mission is designed to explore the X-ray emission from objects in the Universe at high red shifts. A core set of instruments has been selected that allows the scientific goals of the mission to be met. It comprises narrow field imaging spectrometers of both Transition Edge Sensor (TES) and Superconducting Tunnel Junction (STJ) designs, and a Wide Field Imager with novel Silicon Active - Pixel sensing elements. We discuss the additional science goals for XEUS such as high time resolution, polarimetry and extensions to high energies >10keV, and the additional instruments with modest resource requirements which may facilitate these goals.
