Well.... other than 8 and 9, all the numbers on the list are prime... and 8 and 9 are powers of primes (specifically, 2^3 and 3^2, respectively.) Beyond that I have no idea where this is going.

Got it.

3
31
2, 157
2, 1571 (NOT 9, 349)
3, 7, 8, 11, 17
314159
7, 13, 19, 23,79
31, 103, 9839
5, 7, 9, 127, 7853
2, 139, 2131, 5303
8, 9, 436332313
314159265359
2, 5, 314159265359
2, 3, 53, 73, 2531, 534697

The first, second, sixth, and twelvth lines in this completed sequence should explain it.

EDIT: after a non-subtle hint about the excessively subtle error, I found it.
EDIT2: write the numbers right, dammit.
