    Magnetically driven self-assembly of colloidal particles into highly ordered structures on a substrate is demonstrated. The process allows for programming of specific geometrical patterns of colloidal particles. It also permits assembly of well-defined colloidal patterns of many different particle types, possibly carrying different labels.
