We discuss recent theoretical and experimental progress on correlated materials with strong spin-orbit coupling. In particular, we focus on theoretical framework to understand topological phases of matter that include quantum spin liquid, topological insulators, and topological semi-metals. Novel magnetic order in spin-orbit Mott insulators proximate to the topological phases are also discussed. We consider applications of these ideas to recent experiments on various 5d transition metal oxides, especially pyrochlore iridates and 2D/3D honeycomb iridates.
