The true origins of the Citadel are hidden from most of the races in the galaxy. The station was originally built by the [[Leviathan|precursors]] to the [[Reaper]]s at an unknown time in the past, 37 million or more years ago. Installed in the Citadel is an [[artificial intelligence]] (identified in the 22nd century as the Catalyst) designed to keep the peace between organic races and synthetic races. It eventually determined that peacemaking was futile and invented the Reaper cycle as an alternative, turning its own creators into the first Reaper.

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.
