In 2148, explorers on Mars discover the remains of an ancient civilization called the Protheans. The advanced technology left there includes quantities of a substance called "Element Zero," which can be used to alter the mass of anything near it. By utilizing this "mass effect," humanity are able to develop technologies such as faster-than-light travel, force fields and artificial gravity. Additionally, Charon is discovered to be a Prothean artifact called a "mass relay," which enables near-instantaneous travel to Arcturus; it is one of many mass relays littered about the galaxy. Their use allows humanity to come in contact with many other sapient species. As of the year 2183 (the time in which the first game is set), mankind is the newest species to join the galactic community and is still working to make a name for itself.

The galactic community partitioned the Milky Way into five different sectors, known as the Terminus Systems, the Attican Traverse, Inner and Outer Council Space, and Alliance Space. Earth is a significant setting, particularly in the third installment. A space station known as the "Citadel," left behind by the Protheans, serves as the capitol for the galaxy; most species have an embassy there, and the "Citadel Council" meets there to deliberate matters of galactic import.[1]
