All good things must come to an end, and that includes the Commander Shepard trilogy. However, just because it is coming to an end, that doesn't mean we can't go out with a bang. Introducing the final Mass Effect 3 single-player DLC: Citadel!

When a sinister conspiracy targets Commander Shepard, you and your team must uncover the truth, through battles and intrigue that range from the glamour of the Citadel’s Wards to the top-secret Council Archives.  Uncover the truth and fight alongside your squad – as well as the cast from the original Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2.

When the adventure is over, reconnect with your favorite characters from the Mass Effect Trilogy, try your luck at the Citadel’s Silver Coast Casino, blow off steam in the Armax Combat Arena, or explore and furnish Shepard’s own living quarters on the Citadel. With unique content and cinematics featuring your friends and romance interests in the Mass Effect trilogy, Mass Effect 3: Citadel offers one final chance to see the characters you have known for years and rekindle romances.

Mass Effect 3: Citadel will release worldwide on March 5th on Xbox 360, PC and PS3 (on March 6th on PS3 in Europe).

We've been reading your questions and the Dev team has some answers for the more commonly asked ones.
Note: This FAQ Includes Spoilers for the Mass Effect 3 Main Game Experience
 
When Can I Play the Citadel DLC?
You can play the Citadel DLC any time after stopping the Cerberus coup attempt on the Citadel and before beginning your attack on Cronos Station. (Note, I had previously said London, but was mistaken).
 
Will (CHARACTER NAME) be present in the DLC?
We would prefer not to spoil which characters will be present, or in what context, beyond what we’ve said: the DLC offers a chance to adventure with your ME3 squad, along with Urdnot Wrex, and to connect with old friends, including romances.
 
Will (CHARACTER NAME) be present only after a certain mission?
After completing the adventure portion of the Citadel DLC, you will have the chance to reconnect with old friends. Your friends will only appear once you have completed their content from the main game. For example, you will only be able to meet up with Jack after both completing Grissom Academy and talking to Jack in the bar at Purgatory.
 
Should I Have Everything Else in the Game Done Before Playing Citadel?
There is no right or wrong time to play the Citadel DLC, once it’s unlocked. If you play the Citadel DLC with everything else unlocked (just before attacking Cronos Station), the new DLC content will all be unlocked. If you play the Citadel DLC right after stopping the Cerberus coup attempt, the DLC content will unlock naturally over the course of the main game.
 
Does the Citadel DLC Affect the Ending?

No, not beyond the possibility of adding new war assets to increase your Galactic Readiness score. You may of course continue on to play the endgame after completing the Citadel DLC, but there is also a natural “stopping point” that should make it clear where the DLC content ends and your return to the main game begins.

One important note.

For Xbox 360 users, the Citadel DLC pack will come as 2 downloads on Xbox Live. ME3 Citadel is larger than our previous DLC packs, so it had to be split into 2 downloads. The first pack is priced at $14.99 and the second pack is tagged as free. Players need to purchase and download pack 1, then download pack 2 at no additional cost.

You can download pack 2 without purchasing pack one, but the DLC will not work. You will get an error message in game asking you to download pack 1. It will say "This DLC will only work in conjunction with Part 1 of Mass Effect™ 3: Citadel, which is split across 2 downloadable packages. Please purchase Part 1 prior to downloading Part 2 at no additional cost.]"This will not hurt your saved game but you will not be able to launch Citadel until you have both packs.

This only effects Xbox 360 users. Citadel for the PC and PS3 is in one pack.

Well, since there were multiple threads....and this is where to officially put it now:

I need less 'HEART AND SOUL' and more doing your job, BioWare.

Good news is that the multiplayer pack is free, thereby providing me with something I will download for both my Multiplayer experience, and also enhancing my Single Player experience...because Multiplayer mode makes a better story than your single player mode.

Those of you who like ME SP, PLEASE GO PAY FOR MY DLC WITH YOUR PURCHASE. Thank you. You should spend money so I can play more.

Sounds awesome.

More content with ME2 characters?

It ain't ending related but it's the next best thing.

Thank you, BioWare!

Nope. Still going to wait to see if the DLC's actually decent before considering it.
I mean, what with Omega's cute skating bugs that's been reported... (it's why I still haven't picked it up.)

Too big for a single x-box download? I like the sound of that.

Intriuged about this conspiracy.

Also over the bloody moon about actually getting more time with ME2 squadmates.

Dare I be cautiously optimistic? Yeah go on, why not.

Hmm, I'll hold of on purchasing for now but I'll admit it doesn't look too bad.

EDIT: Are they playing spin the bottle with Wrex? :lol:

That was my first thought. I do hope the story's up to par though.

Looks like Bioware did listen and added (sort of) a hub and more time with squad. I am a happy camper :) though i would still wait to see what it really is first.
Cautiously optimistic me.
Edit:

Uncover the truth and fight alongside your squad – as well as the cast from the original Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2

Cautiosuly very optimistic me!

15 bucks ...1200 points

and what we do, is wasting time on the citadel, while people die in the war.
