Speaking technically, 'Project Apollo', as it were, ended with Apollo 17. The Apollo spacecraft used for the Apollo-Soyuz mission was unnumbered and not considered part of Project Apollo as its objective—while definitely significant in its own way—diverged from the objectives of the other Apollo missions (namely, achieving crewed lunar landings). While the missions dubbed Apollo 7-10 and 13 did not result in lunar landings, these missions were either necessary precursors to successful landings or, in the case of Apollo 13, a failed attempt.
