Much to my surprise several 70's & 80's progressive rock bands have made outstanding 2000's albums.  From my perspective IQ "Road of Bones", David Bowie "Blackstar", Black Sabbath 13, and more than one 2000 era Magma album have dazzled me.  

  Anyway, I wanted to comb thru older artists from the 70's & 80's who have made comeback albums in the 2000's,  albums that compare with their halcyon days of yesteryear.   In your opinion, what albums from the 2000's would qualify.   Please include any prog sub genres, proto prog, or prog related album that comes to mind.

Marillion - Anoraknophobia and Marbles

Sebastian Hardie - Blueprint
Focus - 8 and 9-New Skin are pretty enjoyable
IQ post 2000 is great, all 4 albums
Pendragon - Pure & Passion
Deep Purple - Now What!
Iron Maiden - Brave New World
Fates Warning - all albums starting 2000 (Disconnected) until last year's album. 

I like post 2000 Steve Hackett.

Eloy - Visionary is also a good album. 
Camel - A Nod and a Wink is also quite enjoyable.

Deep Purple, King Crimson, Camel, Steve Hackett, PFM have put very good music in the new century, not only one album, but a consistent output of music.

Great suggestions Guys!  Santa has his work cut out for me. 2000 versions  Wyatt, Deep Purple, Focus, Kate Bush, and VDGG among a few of the others were totally off my radar.   

It will be interesting reading your individual archived reviews of the bands you've listed.

I think Kansas' "Somewhere to Elsewhere" and "The Prelude Implicit" are great albums

Goblin Non Ho Sonno (2000); Back to the Goblin 2005 (2006); Four of a Kind (2015) (absolutely essential, as good as they were in their prime!!)

Eloy Visionary was pretty good, but The Vision, the Sword and the Pyre, Part 1 is on another level entirely!

Tangerine Dream Views from a Red Train (2008) (a splendid album, and the best all-new offering from Froese & co. since Paul Haslinger left the band)

Ozric Tentacles Where to start? How about: The Hidden Step (2000), Spirals in Hyperspace (2004), The Yum Yum Tree (2009), and Paper Monkeys (2011).

Fates Warning Darkness in a Different Light (2013) and Theories of Flight (2016) (an outstanding return to form after two forgettable albums a decade earlier)
Blue Oyster Cult Curse of the Hidden Mirror (2002) (amazingly, one of their best albums, and they haven't done another studio record since)

Santana IV (best thing out of that camp in 25+ years)

VDGG Trisector, all MAGMA releases, PFM Stati di immaginazione, Wyatt's Cuckooland, Eno's Small Craft on a Milk Sea and others, Ozrics, Thinking Plague, Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, anything connected to Tony Levin, some of Steve Hackett's stuff has stellar moments, good call on the Santana IV, Rush had something popular, of course Present and Univers Zero, and Ruyichi Sakamoto continues to push the light fantastic with his cutting edge sound experimentation collaborations.

For me the first that comes to mind is "Out There" by Rick Wakeman. This year's "Return to Ommadawn" by Mike Oldfield is also really beautiful. For me, Pink Floyd's "The Endless River" was also a very beautiful and enjoyable piece of music. IQ's "The Road of Bones" has been mentioned already, and I do love it (even if it's actually the only album I know from the band). And even though I didn't really love every single song from the album, Iron Maiden's "The Book of Souls" is really great... for what I have heard from the band (which is not a lot, but I might venture to make a guess), this one could just as well end up being my favourite album form them, and I could easily make a choice of songs from it to make a really great single disc album. Now, one last thought... given that 80's bands are included in this thread, Dream Theater could just as well make the cut of choices, since they started in the 80's...

Gong's I See You and Rejoice! I'm Dead are pretty respectable.

Also on a Kavus tip, Cardiacs' Special Garage Concerts, assuming we can count live albums.

Art Zoyd's offerings in the 2000s may be difficult to access, far more contemporary avantgarde than progressive rock and with a somewhat cold feel to them, but certainly there's no drop in their form. Eyecatcher would be my first nomination but all others (except "Pure Noise" which is just that) are worthwhile, too.

Holger Czukay's 2000s output is also of consistently good quality and innovation value, with Linear City and The New Millenium my favourites.

Hackett has aged very well; I feel To Watch The Storms and Wild Orchids probably outclass any of his classic solo albums. Just marginally predating your stated time period is Hammill's 1999 version of The Fall of the House of Usher, which is enormously high quality.

Magma's K.A. and mhnthtt-R top my list. VdGG's A Grounding in Numbers, Ian Anderson's Thick as a Brick 2 and David Gilmour's On an Island are other good ones.

Seconded - after recording only two albums before splitting up in the 1970's, Seb Hardie released their third (and for now last) album thirty-plus years later in 2012 and it's a nice piece of work, well worth checking out, though with no side-long "epic" (unlike the two '70's albums and the one-off Windchase LP which featured Mario and Toivo).

Gong's I See You is as good as the classic trilogy in my books
Mike Oldfield's Return to Ommadawn is in my opinion also as good as any other Oldfield album
Peter Hammill's Singularity (+ Thin Air, From the Trees etc. if you enjoy his music)
VdGG's Do Not Disturb (and other albums)
Magma's albums
King Crimson's Power to Believe
