The magnetic order in the magnetic-fild-induced so-called A phase of cubic chiral antiferromagnet EuPtSi was investigated by resonant X-ray scattering (RXS) near the Eu $$L_{2}$$ edge. The high flux RXS signal under the magnetic field applied along [111] revealed the first and second order satellite magnetic reflections, indicating that the A phase is a triple-$$q$$ magnetic ordered state that is described by three propagation vectors lying in the plane normal to the magnetic field direction; $$q_1$$, $$q_2$$, and $$q_3$$. With the high resolution in the reciprocal space achieved in the RXS measurement, it is suggested that the triple-$$q$$ order strongly couples with the underlying crystal lattice. The triple-$$q$$ magnetic order is discussed in the context of a magnetic skyrmion lattice on which the geometrical frustration may play a crucial role.
