    For all your Mass Effect 3 needs - provided you have any remaining - BioWare has announced a new piece of DLC for the game, Mass Effect 3: Citadel. Eurogamer reports:

    BioWare has announced Mass Effect 3: Citadel, the final single-player expansion for the game, and the final multiplayer expansion, Reckoning.

    Citadel will be released on 5th March for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, priced $14.99 or 1200 Microsoft Points.

    [...] BioWare describes Citadel as "an emotional ride" featuring fan-favourite characters from the series. It will be "one final, sentimental journey with Commander Shepard and their squad".

    "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," BioWare community manager Chris Priestly revealed on the company's official forum. "Uncover the truth and fight alongside your squad - as well as the cast from the original Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2."

    Citadel will include a new hub area to explore even after the DLC's main plotline has been completed - a major complaint about previous add-on, Omega.

    "When the adventure is over, reconnect with your favourite 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."

    New scenes with Mass Effect 3 squadmates Liara, James, Garrus and Kaidan have been teased in new screenshots, as well as the return of previous squadmates Wrex and Miranda.

    Citadel is so big, Xbox 360 players will have to download the game in two chunks. You'll pay the full 1200 Microsoft Points for "Part 1", then be able to download "Part 2" separately for free. The reason for this is that Citadel weighs in at almost 4GB, nearly double Microsoft's 2GB DLC file-size limit.

    [...] BioWare previously said it was "all hands on deck" for Citadel, with all of the game's main writing staff and composer Sam Hulick returning - Hulick and others had not contributed to previous DLC chapters Leviathan and Omega.

    Actor Seth Green also returned to provide voice-work, the only time he has recorded new lines for a Mass Effect 3 add-on.​

    It so big! I'm so excited!

    You would be right back when ME2 was around. Now I don't even don't remove it from inventories.

    Are the other DLC´s worth the effort at least? I played vanilla (i think i still have my save somewhere) and it was passable for what it set out to be, until the ending that is, but not something i would bother to replay.

    So this is just going to be fan service, I bet? Romance and friendship cutscenes with a short, retarded and extremely tacked-on mission. I mean what the fuck, an apartment and a casino? Just new backdrops for the emotional engagements and a shitty pazaak minigame.

    Wait, how can it continue on AFTER the main quest? From all the shitmoaning I heard about ME3 was that Shepard committed suicide in the end and destroyed the entire universe with him....

    ME3 makes an automatic save before the final point of no return so you can still travel around in the vast emptiness of space, play dlc as it is released and enjoy the different endings of Mass Effect 3 over and over again.

    edit: Also fuck that, Crooked Bee!
    Seriously, how many cutscenes do we need with Shep saying goodbye to his party members? Vanilla ME3 already did it like twice. Now, if BioWare made a Zaeed Emotional Engagement Dip, like 5 gigabyte of just conversations and badass cutscenes of Zaeed, I'd understand completely. But this shit? Fuck this shit.

    Well, of course. It's silly to disagree with somebody who is always correct.

    That is pretty much what happened, regardless of your choice all the gates (whatever they were called) get destroyed and the ending movie implies that even centuries later planets have not reconnected yet and how could they as the means of FTL travel were destroyed. Oh wait serious retcons incoming, EA will not give up on the cashcow that is the waifu enthusiasts that frequent BSN.
