It happened alot to me. I have the collectors Edition, and aftyer playing multiplayer, the game keeps on freezing on the loading screens, in the normandy when using the elevator as well as in the Citadell. It is really spoiling the whole gaming experience. Hope Bioware brings out a patch to fix this major issue of the game and soon.

I recently started experiencing this issue as well, however at first it would only freeze when loading a star system on occasion. This was before going into multiplayer, keep in mind. After going into multiplayer, I've had the game freeze on me again in SP and once in the middle of a MP match. :(

the game has been freezing on me non stop over the weekend. It started when i went into muliplayer and used points to purchase a weapons box. the next day everything went bad. it freezes during cut scenes, loading screens during combat. single player and muliplayer. it is making the game unplayable.
