I believe the language most popular and most spoken in China is Mandarin. However, in Hong Kong and Macau, which are separate administrative regions, they speak Cantonese, English and Portuguese. Of course, there are some indigenous languages and probably languages specific to a particular region in the country but I don't really know which they are and what the statistics of these languages is.

If you check Wikpedia then you'll find that most of the work and the education is forcing Mandarin. There is also one more language Cantonese, Coastal Korean and Japanese. However those languages are not official languages. Apart from these languages there are around 292 other local languages with very less influence on how the state is being governed. Most of the royal dynasties have their own dialect and the history written on their specific language construct.
So to answer your question, official language is just one : Mandarin. And that's the language you need to understand to deal over there. They also make use of English but penetration is comparatively less.
