The so-called Arabsat 6A satellite was placed into an equatorial orbit some 22,000 miles (36,000km) above the Earth.
Its successful landing of the center core from a Falcon Heavy is a relief for SpaceX after a similar attempt ended in disaster a year ago.
About two minutes later, its center core landed successfully on the "Of Course I Still Love You" droneship in the Atlantic Ocean. That's why the second-ever launch of its Falcon Heavy rocket - and the first to carry a payload for a paying customer - was a key milestone for SpaceX.
The satellite SpaceX will launch on Wednesday will update satellite coverage for Arabsat, which is based in Riyadh and delivers hundreds of television channels and radio stations to homes across the Middle East and North Africa.
