Commander Shepard will embark one final journey with the release of Mass Effect 3 DLC, Citadel, on March 5, BioWare has announced.

In Mass Effect 3: Citadel, players will explore and discover new locations across the vast, deep-space station while also having the opportunity to reconnect with some of their favourite characters from all three of the Mass Effect games. This will be the last single-player DLC for Mass Effect 3.

Mass Effect producer Michael Gamble says the DLC on Xbox 360 is "split over TWO DLC packages. It's nearly 4 gigs in total."

Citadel will cost 1200 MS Points/£11.99.

In addition a free multiplayer expansion, Reckoning, will be released on February 26, offering players new firepower and character kits for the war against the Reapers.

"The team has poured heart and soul into Mass Effect 3: Reckoning and Mass Effect 3: Citadel. As the launch of these chapters near, the feeling around the studio is bittersweet," said Casey Hudson, executive producer of the Mass Effect series. "We have always been humbled and driven by the passion of our fans for the Mass Effect trilogy. We hope fans will enjoy spending more time with some of their favourite characters - we have certainly enjoyed spending time creating them. We're excited to release this final sendoff for the trilogy and move forward into the future of the Mass Effect universe."
