The sphere $S^2$ and the torus $T^2$ are the only closed connected surfaces for which higher topological complexities are known (for each $n\in\{2,3,...\}\subset\mathbb{N}$, $\mathrm{TC}_n(S^2)=n$ and $\mathrm{TC}_n(T^2)=2n-2$). This text aims to find topological complexities for most other closed connected surfaces. For all but $S^2$, $T^2$, the projective plane ($\mathbb{R}\mathbb{P}^2$) and the Klein bottle the $n$-th topological complexity is $2n$.
