What do I need to do to get Matriarch Aethyta to show up on the Presidium? I do not see her there in my playthrough, and I don't know if that's because I haven't done something I need to, or I'm looking in the wrong area, or what.

I know you can see her, because of this question.

Does the conversation with Matriarch Aethyta go the same way if you haven't watched the video archives in the Shadow Broker base?

How far in the game are you? There is a certain point where she will not show up, I believe – TylerShads Mar 11 '12 at 19:20
Am fighting on Rannoch. – Rare Candy Mar 11 '12 at 19:20
@TylerShads Is she there from the beginning? – Raven Dreamer Mar 12 '12 at 4:44
@RavenDreamer Yes she was there – TylerShads Mar 12 '12 at 4:51
@TylerShads I'd make that the answer then. :) – Raven Dreamer Mar 12 '12 at 4:51

She was at the bar by where Liara sits from the beginning of the first time you can go to the Presidium.

I do not have anything official at the moment, but after the attack on the Citadel, a lot of NPCs change around. It is possible that, she is one of these NPCs as I did have all the dialogue available before the attack.

I did not do the Shadow Broker DLC but I could still have some choices, including having Liara talk to her but she no longer appears in the Citadel after the attack.
