Abbott told parliament "new and credible information" had come to light nearly two weeks after the plane vanished.
He said an Australian air force Orion had been diverted to look into the objects. He did not specify where they were but Australia has taken charge of the search in the southern Indian Ocean.
"The Australian Maritime Safety Authority has received information based on satellite information of objects possibly related to the search," Abbott said.
"Following specialist analysis of this satellite imagery, two possible objects related to the search have been identified."
