The second season of The Walking Dead episodic game has just been released. I've not yet finished all the episodes from season one.

Is the second season a continuation of the same story ( so may include spoilers ) or it is a totally separate story and is playable without ruining the ending of S1?

Yes the second season of the walking dead is a direct continuation of the story from the end of the first season and I would imagine there will be some large spoilers from the end of season one that will become apparent almost immediately.

My advice is finish season one first.

I am not sure how the 400 days DLC ties into season 2, if at all. Maybe some one else could add that information.

It has been stated that your choices in the 400 Days DLC will feed into season 2. However, given that playing the DLC is not a requirement, there must be some default choices that will occur if the DLC hasn't been played. I imagine it will be more of a "hey cool, that's what I did" thing. – au revoir Dec 18 '13 at 14:21

You don't "have" to but I think it would not be a wise decision. They allow you to select a pre-set selection of "Decisions" if you choose not to play the first, but it is definitely not recommended.
