The expedition 15 prime crew, consisting of Fyodor Yurchikhin and Oleg Kotov, as well as their backup crew of Mikhail Korniyenko and Roman Romanenko participated. Also attending were NASA astronauts Clayton Anderson and Gregory Shanitoff who are intended to fly in June.

Spaceflight participant, or simply space tourist, Charles Simonyi was also present. He is the fifth tourist to fly into space but sees his tasks consisting of more than plain sightseeing. He plans to undertake several experiments for the European Space Agency ESA on his 10 day flight.
