The Kochel catalogue: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%C3%B6chel-Verzeichnis

"List of compositions by Mozart": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_compositions_by_Wolfgang_Amadeus_Mozart

K126 has its own Wikipedia article, with plot summary.  There were three different compositions labeled K421, and not much information given on any of them.
K421  appears to generally accepted as the D Minor String Quartet

"The second of Mozart’s six ‘Haydn’ quartets, the Quartet in D minor, was composed in June 1783. According to legend he even worked on it during the night that his wife Constanze was giving birth to their first child. This is one of Mozart’s most concentrated works, and one of his most emotionally unguarded."

It is also known as the String Quartet No 15 in D Minor.
