As Conrad said, any commercial software can do the regular progressive collapse. In the FEMA 439 project Degenkolb employed SAP 2000 for progressive collapse. |
LSDYNA is another program that can accommodate progressive collapse if higher degrees of sophistication are required. There are also commercially available programs such as:

As far as I am aware there is no commercial software at present for progressive collapse, just research. Also progressive collapse is more a qualitative issue than quantitative.
Any frame analysis software with a programmable interface would be helpful for the analysis. Without the programmable interface simply copy the model, delete the members and change the loads. With a programmable interface automatically delete members and change loads using the one model, and search for the critical condition.
