My friend just got a copy of Mass Effect 3 in Europe, and it came with a bunch of bonus DLC that we don't have in North America. He said I could have the codes since he isn't going to bother with them.

Will the codes work for my American version? Or are they region locked?

It may be worth mentioning what platform you're on, as I imagine PC Origin codes may be less likely to be region-locked than console ones. – FAE Mar 9 '12 at 2:21

As a general rule of thumb (applies in most cases):

PC DLC codes should be region free.

Console DLC codes are almost never region free.

Yes it is. At Play Asia they say the collectors' edition is region free, which means all the codes are region free too.

Er, no, it doesn't mean that at all. – Shinrai Mar 9 '12 at 21:44
