We report the final results of EDELWEISS-II, obtained with ten 400 g heat-and-ionization cryogenic detectors equipped with InterDigit electrodes for the rejection of near-surface events. Results from fourteen months of continuous operation and a total exposure of 384 kg day are presented. We also present the status of EDELWEISS-III, which will accumulate more than 3000 kg day of data with 40 new 800 g detectors in the coming years.
