A large number of high-resolution spectra have been taken with different echelle spectrographs in order to complement the asteroseismological observations of the CoRoT satellite. In the framework of the EU FP7 collaborative project SpaceInn, 7103 HARPS spectra have been stored in a VO-compliant database along with the CoRoT photometric data of the same objects. Several useful variability parameters (mean line profiles; indicators of differential rotation, activity and emission lines) together with v sin i and radial velocity measurements have been extracted from the spectra. The atmospheric parameters Teff, log g and [Fe/H] have been computed following a homogeneous procedure. The sample of 261 targets contained in the database aims at being a resource for in-depth studies of a wide range of classes of variable stars.
