This ME3 wiki page has a list of possible race/class combinations, but by default only the human options are available. How are the other races unlocked?

I would suggest reserving questions about what does or does not need to be unlocked until the actual games come out and we know that those options need unlocking. –  murgatroid99 Feb 29 '12 at 22:29
    
Updated the question to be more specific to the demo, hopefully that helps. –  Brysonic Feb 29 '12 at 22:44

@murgatroid99 this question is fine as is - the multiplayer demo is the actual game, just character level and match-type capped. It might be easier to answer in a week, but it can be authoritatively answered now. –  Raven Dreamer Feb 29 '12 at 22:52
    
@RavenDreamer yeah, I think it looks fine now. The original version seemed to be asking a question about the actual game based on the structure of the demo, which seemed premature. –  murgatroid99 Feb 29 '12 at 22:56

This might require updating after the game releases, but in the demo, you can get additional race/class unlocks by purchasing "item packs" with credits you earn by playing the game.

In the demo version, there's a "Recruit Pack" that costs 5,000 cr, and a "Veteran Pack" that costs 20,000 cr. Think of these like a pack of cards you might buy for a collectible card game - you'll get a random assortment of several different things, including the possibility of unlocking a new character.

Last character I unlocked was the Asari Adept, who was a Gold bordered card - so new character classes look like they're pretty rare. –  Raven Dreamer Feb 29 '12 at 22:53
    
Note that the Vet packs, whilst costing more, do (ostensibly) give you a higher chance of getting "rare" unlocks, which all of the alien versions I've seen have been. –  aslum Mar 1 '12 at 1:41

Wow, the CCG analogy is a pretty good one. –  MBraedley Mar 1 '12 at 15:36
    
Some class unlocks are "uncommon" others are "rare" -- and if you get a double, you receive an XP boost instead and the option to modify the appearance further. –  Shadur Mar 30 '12 at 6:49
