eFEDS (the eROSITA Final Equatorial Depth Survey) is a CalPV program of the German eROSITA consortium. Using a field-scan observing strategy, eFEDS covers an area of approximately 130 deg^2 in an equatorial field with comprehensive mult-wavelength coverage, notably with Subaaru HSC, VISTA/VIKING and the GAMA spectroscopic survey. With a total exposure time of around 400ks, eFEDS achieves the same nominal depth expected over the whole sky at the end of the 4-year eROSITA all-sky survey. This allows a direct verification and accurate prediction of the expected eRASS X-ray source populations, which are dominated by AGN at high Galactic latitudes such as this. An overview of the first AGN results in eFEDS will be presented.
