Will Mass Effect 3 Have Online Multiplayer?

An advertisement has been spotted in a South African magazine, suggesting that Mass Effect 3 could be shipping with an online multiplayer component. The scanned page posted on the BioWare forums includes a list of features for the Collector's Edition, which ends with the 'online multiplayer pass'. Most curious, yes?
Eurogamer has since learned from anonymous sources that Mass Effect 3 could indeed feature an online co-op mode that is entirely separate from the campaign, a bit like Rage's 'Legends of the Wasteland' co-op missions perhaps.
BioWare has expressed its interest in Mass Effect multiplayer, and although nothing has been confirmed or set in stone, this is a strong hint that multiplayer may be making an appearance in Mass Effect 3. Or it could be an error and the scanned ad could be alluding to the online pass EA bundles with all of its new games. We'll just have to wait and see.
Mass Effect 3 is out on March 6th, 2012 in North America and March 9th, 2012 in Europe. Will multiplayer be in? Check out the scanned magazine page below and make your own mind up as to whether it looks kosher or not.
