The title compound exists as a 1D coordination polymer consisting of succinate anions, manganese cations and 2,2′-bipyridyl molecules. Twelve water molecules are present in the unit cell and are part of a hydrogen bonding system. Some of these waters are binding to manganese cations while others are only participating in hydrogen bonding. The structure has a monoclinic space group P21/c with a = 8.2750(3) Å, b = 11.5104(3) Å and c = 16.9113(6) Å, β = 95.2727(16); V = 1603.96(9) Å3 and Z = 4.
