    UV and a polarizer seem to be the defacto ones most carry around. The rest depend on what kind of shooting you plan on doing.

    I second the polarizer and UV filter. I would add IR and/or Graduated/split ND filters.

    Polarizer: helps to richen the color saturation in the scene, and/or augment the level of reflected light from water/glass/ice, so you can see through it.

    UV filter: For landscape scenes including a good bit of distance, a haze can enter into your photographs from the UV light coming down. A UV filter will cut down on this "background light".

    IR: IR landscape shots are otherwordly. :)

    Graduated ND filters: Great for sunset/bright sky landscapes, so that you can capture both land and sky without over or under exposing either.
