The paper provides a review of the state of the art and prospects of space research in heliophysics, in which a pivotal role belongs to magnetic measurements in the Sun and heliosphere. New space missions, such as the Interhelioprobe, Solar Orbiter, Solar Probe Plus, etc., will follow the currently operating ones (Hinode, SDO, STEREO, etc.) to observe the Sun from short distances and from out-of-ecliptic positions, as well as to conduct in situ measurements in the vicinity of the Sun and outside the ecliptic. The planned coordinated observations within the framework of these missions will allow us to explore the structure and dynamics of magnetic fields in the polar regions of the Sun, to study the mechanisms of the solar dynamo and solar cycle, to gain a deeper insight into the process of corona heating and acceleration of the solar wind, and to get a response to a number of other pressing issues of heliophysics.
