Recent atomic data for Fe xiii are benchmarked against high-resolution spectroscopic observations of the solar corona. All the identifications of the EUV lines are reviewed by also taking into account laboratory measurements. A few new identifications are proposed, and many wavelengths are revised. All the strongest EUV lines are now identified. Very good agreement between predicted and observed line intensities is generally found using the latest atomic calculations. We clearly indicate which EUV lines are blended, and which are best for electron-density measurements in different regimes.
