They say that parting is such sweet sorrow, but as we near the end of the Mass Effect 3 adventure, we’re giving fans a fitting send-off in the form of two final pieces of DLC.

Mass Effect 3: Citadel – Single Player DLC

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, including Urdnot Wrex!

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). Price: $14.99, 1200MS points and 1200 BW points.

Mass Effect 3: Reckoning – Multiplayer DLC

Prepare for the Reckoning!  Newfound allies join the multiplayer war for survival in Mass Effect 3: Reckoning.  The Geth Juggernaut, Female Turian Raptor, Talon Mercenary, Alliance Infiltration Unit, and more take up arms to stop the Reaper threat.  Smash your enemies with the Biotic Hammer as you lay waste to the battlefield as the Krogan Warlord.

Wield 7 new weapons for multiplayer, including the Geth Spitfire Assault Rifle, Venom Shotgun, Lancer Assault Rifle, and amplify your arsenal with new equipment and weapon mods featuring the Geth Scanner and Assault Rifle Omni-blade.

Unconfirmed Reckoning multiplayer DLC to bring six new co-op story missions to Mass Effect 3.

Unconfirmed Reckoning multiplayer DLC to bring six new co-op story missions to Mass Effect 3.
Data regarding an upcoming Mass Effect 3 expansion have surfaced thanks to eagle-eyed data miners who combed the game's recent bug-fixing patch.

This new co-op mode, likely to be released as future DLC, will incorporate players' single-player progress, including Paragon/Renegade points, reputation choices and major decisions made throughout the campaign.

This knowledge was prised out of the patch by Clevernoob forum poster TSA_383, who also found references in the files for new ultra-light shotgun, assault rifle and pistol materials for multiplayer. The recent single-player weapon DLC will also find its way to multiplayer.

The information tallies with the information a Reddit user posted last week, which pegged the title of this DLC as Reckoning.

"The day of reckoning is nigh!" read the description. "The Reckoning Multiplayer Expansion brings six new never before seen co-op story missions to the game and new co-op gameplay modes. It provides four new maps to conquer and hazard variations of the Earth maps. It also enables reinforcement packs that offer new kits for the Salarians, Krogans, humans and Volus. In-game reinforcement packs now include three new weapons (Chakram Launcher, Blood Pack Punisher and Adas Anti-Synthetic Rifle)."
