Cindy Parlow (born May 8, 1978) is a retired American professional soccer player. A native of Memphis, Tennessee, where she attended Germantown High School (Germantown, Tennessee). She is the daughter of Larry and Josephine Parlow. She played college soccer at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she was a four-time All-American and member of three teams that won the NCAA Women's Soccer Championship. She won the Hermann Trophy as outstanding female collegiate soccer player twice, in 1997 and 1998, and the ACC Female Athlete of the Year in 1999.

She began training with the U.S. Women's National Team in March 1995, making her first appearance (and scoring her first goal) in a January 14, 1996 friendly against Russia. She started all six games for the United States during their 1999 World Cup victory, scoring two goals. She was also a member of the 1996, 2000 and 2004 Olympic teams, as well as the 2003 Women's World Cup team.

She was a founding member of the Women's United Soccer Association, and played for the Atlanta Beat, helping her team reach the playoffs in each of the league's three seasons of operation (2001 2003).

On July 30, 2006, she announced her retirement from international play, citing post-concussion syndrome. She concluded her career with 158 caps (the ninth most in United States Women's National team history) and 75 goals (fifth best). She did, however, leave the door open for a possible return to professional play domestically in a hypothetical reconstituted version of the WUSA.

On July 28, 2007, she married John Cone in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and lives there now. She is Director of Coaching,

Senior Girls Programs (U13-U18) for a Triangle United soccer club.
