Mass Effect Trophies
Soldier Ally
Complete the majority of the game with the Alliance soldier squad member

This squad member is Ashley. You’ll get her on Eden Prime and will need to take her with you into every mission from that point on for the trophy. With Ashley, be sure that you have this trophy before going to Virmire, just to be safe.

For the quickest way to get to the end of the Citadel and still have plenty of missions available for your other squadmates, follow this outline.

  • After the conversation with Udina, go straight to the Citadel Tower.
  • Finish the conversation with the council and then Udina and Anderson. Go to Chora’s Den and find Harkin.
  • Talk to Harkin and then go to the Medical Clinic to find Garrus.
  • Head to C-Sec and recruit Wrex.
  • Return to Chora’s Den and kill Fist, but don’t pick up his OSD.
  • Rescue Tali in the Wards.
  • Return to the Council and become a Spectre.
  • Go to Therum (Artemis Tau, Knossos) and find Liara.

Once you have those steps completed, you should return to the Citadel and start working on the little side missions. They will all still be waiting for you. Keep the same two squad members with you at all times and for every mission. If this doesn’t unlock by the time you reach Ilos, then you’ve done something wrong and will need to start another run. See Completionist for a list of missions.

These 6 trophies unlocked for me during or right after Noveria, following the mini-guide on how to improve the number of missions available. So just complete all side quests you can and when you reach Noveria you surely start getting one of the two trophies or the two if both partners have been along you from the start.

I've heard that if you don't have them before you start Ilos you stuffed up I'm not sure if its correct or not but (I don't know why,how or what for) but my Wrex ally popped as I was about to face Saren so if you've heard the same don't lose hope till the end I was shattered when I thought I'd have to do 4 playthoughs

I used Ashley and Tali for all missions except where you could not and and did not get the two trophies. I am going to replay Saren and see if the pop this time.

You need to do close to 48 mission. I'm starting to think the Bringing down the sky don't count.

it's still up to be tested, but I believe that the mission/assigments count pass onto new game +

I just got both trophies for Ashley and Kaidan on my 2nd playthrought (Hardcore with Infiltrator) and I havent done almost no side mission (though I had done Noveria, Ferros and Therum)

Im now testing if this does count between new characters. Im now playing with Garrus and Wrex and I will do my 3rd playthrough with a Female Adept on Insanity

I took tali and garrus from the moment I recruited them all the way to the end fight against saren, doing enough missions to get the completionist trophy, and still got neither of their trophies.

So does this count across multiple playthroughs

according to Mass Effect wikia, completed assignments do not carry over playthroughs.

I completed the game for the first time with Liara & Tali. I went to the main missions planets in this order: Artemis Tau, Feros, Noveria, Virmire. I got the trophy for Tali on Noveria, during the main mission, and got the trophy for Liara on Virmire, also during the main mission. It is said that assignments count towards these trophies, but also main missions.

completed Noveria & Feros & most of the side missions & it popped up.
these ally trophies can not carry over. it's a 1 playthrough deal. if u miss it u have to start again. they must constantly be in ur active team for the entire duration of main and side missions for it to count. u can do 2 ally trophies per playthrough

I didn't do 45 with Ashley I did 22 I did Noveria and Artemus Tau including rest in side missions I handed in the quest for the guy on Feros who wants you to find his pc and get some stuff for him.

That Count is wrong, I've played with Ashley and Kaiden since the beginning and have just completed the 2 sidequests on Noveria for a total of 54 Missions (not including Bring down the sky) and it only just popped for Kaiden, but not Ashley.

Bring Down the Sky does in fact count towards this. I got Asari Ally right after disarming the bombs
