Andre Mijatović (born 3 December 1979 in Rijeka, SR Croatia, SFR Yugoslavia) is a Croatian footballer who currently plays for, and captains, Hertha BSC in the Bundesliga.

He was born in Rijeka and started his career at local club HNK Rijeka, where he became a member of the first team in the summer of 1998. He subsequently spent five seasons with the club and was a regular in every of the five seasons, making a total of 122 appearances and scoring 10 goals for the club in the Croatian First League. He also made a total of 10 appearances and scored three goals for Rijeka in European international club competitions during the club's participations in the UEFA Champions League qualifying in 1999 and the UEFA Cup in the early 2000s.

During his time with Rijeka, Mijatović also earned himself a place in the Croatian national under-21 team, for which he won a total of 10 international caps between April 1999 and June 2001. He made his debut for the team at the 1999 World Youth Championship in Nigeria, where he played all 90 minutes in every of the four matches played by the Croatian team at the tournament before they were eliminated in the round of 16. He also made four appearances for the team in their qualifying campaign for the 2002 European Under-21 Championship.

At club level, Mijatović left Rijeka for Dinamo Zagreb in the summer of 2003 and subsequently played two seasons for the club as a regular in their team, making a total of 51 appearances and scoring one goal in the Croatian First League. He also won the Croatian Cup with Dinamo in 2004 and played in the UEFA Cup in both of the two seasons with the club, making a total of eight appearances and scoring once as he netted the second goal in Dinamo's 6 1 victory over KSK Beveren on 4 November 2004.

In the summer of 2005, Mijatović left Dinamo for German Second Bundesliga side SpVgg Greuther Fürth and became a regular in the team from the beginning, although his Second Bundesliga debut against Dynamo Dresden on 6 August 2005 was not entirely successful as he was sent off after receiving two yellow cards. He went on to make 30 out of possible 34 appearances in the Second Bundesliga during his first season with Greuther Fürth and also scored three goals for the club in the league, first of them being in a 2 2 draw away against Wacker Burghausen on 17 March 2006.

In July 2007 he moved to Bundesliga team Arminia Bielefeld, where he is a regular in the first team. After three seasons in Bielefeld, he left Arminia to join the newly relegated Hertha BSC.
