Sapient races typically discover [[mass effect technology]] left behind by extinct races from previous "cycles", leading them to discover FTL drive and the mass relay network. Discovery of the mass relays inevitably leads races to the Citadel, which typically becomes the center of a galactic government.

The full technological capabilities of the Citadel are unclear, but it is known to be capable of functioning as an enormous mass relay capable of summoning the Reapers from their hibernation area in "Dark Space". It is also the hardware platform for the Catalyst, and it presumably broadcasts signals that control the Reapers themselves.

The full technological capabilities of the Citadel are unclear, but it is known to be capable of functioning as an enormous mass relay capable of summoning the Reapers from their hibernation area in "Dark Space". It can also exert control over other mass relays, allowing the Reapers to block other traffic through the relay network. It functions as the hardware platform for the Catalyst, and it presumably broadcasts signals that control the Reapers themselves. Buy unspecified means, the Reapers were able to relocate it from the Serpent Nebula to [[Earth]] orbit.
