For the long-lasting impact of CoRoT’s planet findings, precise knowledge of the times of their transits is of vital importance for any future observing campaigns. Here we give the motivation and first results of a systematic revisit of the transits of most CoRoT planets to refine their ephemeris. As secondary objectives, more precise planet characterisations, from period or transit shape variations on/and from use of a well-defined passband may be obtained.
