In the fixed-target COMPASS experiment at CERN, the transverse momentum dependent parton density functions, such like Sivers functions and Boer-Mulders functions, as well as the partonic structure of pions, are explored by the pion-induced Drell-Yan process with 190-GeV pion beam and transversely polarized NH3 and nuclear targets. We have achieved successful data-taking in 2015 and 2018. In this talk, we will report the status of Drell-Yan program and the recent results available by then. We will also introduce the experimental program after the second LHC long shutdown.
