Garrett Hack recently wrote an article in Fine Woodworking about what planes he considered most important. Here is the list in priority order:

1) #4 bench plane
2) Adjustable block plane #60 1/2
3) Jointer plane #7
4) Shoulder plane
5) Smoothing plane (Typically #4 1/2)
6) Spokeshave
7) 2nd block plane for rougher work
8) Small router plane

I personally find the smoothing plane #4 1/2, block plane, and shoulder plane very useful.
