Du'a said upon hearing Adhan

Repeat what the Mu'adhdhin says, except for when he says:
حَيَّ عَلَى الصَّلاَةِ وَحَيَّ عَلَى الْفَلَاحِ

Hayya 'alas-Salah (hasten to the prayer) and Hayya 'alal-Falah (hasten to salvation). Here you should say:
لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ
La hawla wa la quwwata 'illa billah.
There is no might and no power except by Allah.

Bukhari 1/152, Muslim 1/288

وَأَنَا أَشَْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ، رَضِيتُ بِاللهِ رَبَّاً وَبِمُحَمَّدٍ رِسُولاً وَبِالإِْسلاَمِ دِيناً
Wa "ana "ash-hadu "an la "ilaha "illallahu wahdahu la sharika lahu wa "anna Muhammadan 'abduhu wa Rasuluhu, raditu billahi Rabban, wa bi-Muhammadin
Rasulan wa bil"islami dinan.
I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no partner, and that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger. I am pleased with Allah as my Lord, with Muhammad as my Messenger and with Islam as my religion.(1) [To be recited in Arabic after the Mu'adhdhin’s Tashahhud or the words of affirmation of Faith] (2)
(1) Muslim 1/290, (2) Ibn Khuzaymah 1/220
اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ هَذِهِ الدَّعْوَةِ التَّامَّةِ، وَالصَّلَاةِ الْقَائِمَةِ، آتِ مُحَمَّداً الْوَسِيلَةَ وَالْفَضِيلَةَ، وَابْعَثْهُ مَقَاماً مَحْمُوداً الَّذِي وَعَدْتَهُ، [إَنَّكَ لَا تُخْلِفُ الْمِيعَادَ].
Allahumma Rabba hadhihid-da'watit-tammati wassalatil-qa"imati, aati Muhammadanil-wasilata wal-fadilata, wa-b'ath-hu maqamam-mahmudanil-ladhi wa'adtahu, ['innaka la tukhliful-mi'ad]

After replying to the call of Mu'adhdhin. you should recite in Arabic Allah's blessings on the Prophet.
O Allah , Lord of this perfect call and established prayer. Grant Muhammad the intercession and favor, and raise him to the honored station You have promised him, [verily You do not neglect promises].

Bukhari 1/152, and the addition between brackets is from Bayhaqi 1/410 with a good (Hasan) chain of narration. See 'Abdul-Azlz bin Baz's Tuhfatul-'Akhyar, pg. 38.

Between the call to prayer and the 'Iqamah, you should supplicate Allah for yourself. Invocation during this time is not rejected.
