We prove a formula, with power savings, for the sixth moment of Dirichlet L- functions averaged over all primitive characters χ (mod q) with q ≤ Q, and over the critical line. Our formula agrees precisely with predictions motivated by random matrix theory. In particular, the constant 42 appears as a factor in the leading order term, exactly as is predicted for the sixth moment of the Riemann zeta-function.
