What squad mates will I miss from not importing from the previous games?

Do I need to have purchased and/or played through any DLC for Mass Effect or Mass Effect 2 in order to have access to certain squad mates in Mass Effect 3?

That is, are there any squad mates exclusively available from DLC for ME/ME2 that are later featured in Mass Effect 3?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Closing this because it is a subset of the duplicate, even though this came first. – Raven Dreamer Mar 10 '12 at 22:02
I see it as a separate question, I guess. The situation I'm imagining is a player with both the first two games, but none of the DLC. The player wants a full cast for ME3, but doesn't know the answer to the above question. The secondary question that you refer to as a duplicate does not handle this case. – johnjon Mar 10 '12 at 22:11
As my answer on the duplicate states: the only exclusive squadmate is from ME3 DLC. Otherwise, DLC and lack of import means nothing. – Raven Dreamer Mar 10 '12 at 22:20

No, none of the DLC squadmates from ME/ME2 are squadmates in this game.

"From Ashes" - the day 1 ME3 DLC that is included with the Collector's Edition - features a new squadmate, however.
