Perovskite solar cell (PSC) shows a great potential to become the next‐generation photovoltaic technology, which has stimulated researchers to engineer materials and to innovate device architectures for promoting device performance and stability. As the power conversion efficiency (PCE) keeps advancing, the importance of exploring multifunctional materials for the PSCs has been increasingly recognized. Considerable attention has been directed to the design and synthesis of novel organic π‐conjugated molecules, particularly the emerging curved ones, which can perform various unmatched functions for PSCs. In this review, the characteristics of three representative such curved π‐conjugated molecules (fullerene, corannulene and helicene) and the recent progress concerning the application of these molecules in state‐of‐the‐art PSCs are summarized and discussed holistically. With this discussion, we hope to provide a fresh perspective on the structure‐property relation of these unique materials toward high‐performance and high‐stability PSCs.
