Halo Canon Order (Halo 3 and Before)

OP CIA391

  1. 1
  2. ...
  3. 2
  4. 3
  5. 4
  6. 5
  7. 6
  8. ...
  9. 10
Today is quite a sad day...
The updated books, TFOR, TF, FS have info on different pages meaning as TFOR and TF have pages that have events that have events between them...
So I had to change from mentioning pages and try to find a way around them.
I'm still thinking of ways to sort this.

Again sorry to anyone that uses this order regularly this problem will be first on my Halo prioritys.
Hope you could Re post with the new info in order would be much appreciated
Brilliant!

Grunts appear in it, and they joined the covie's about that time. And it's clear it's not during the Human-Covie war.
So I just put it in the earliest date I can. It's got to be somewhat accurate. If I can I'll ask 343i about this and see if I can get a more accurate answer
There is no direct source confirming that 343i changed the canon policy. The Halo canon policy still stands like this (Bungie):

1.) Games
2.) Novels/Books
3.) PR materials/reference materials.

In other words:

1. Halo Reach
2. Halo 3: ODST
3. Halo 3
4. Halo 2
5. Halo: CE
6. Halo Wars
7. Halo Legends
8. Halo: Evolutions
9. Halo: The Cole Protocol
10. Halo: Contact Harvest
11. Halo: Uprising
12. Halo: Ghosts of Onyx
13. Halo Graphic Novel
14. Halo: First Strike
15. Halo: The Flood
16. Halo: The Fall of Reach
17. Birth of a Spartan (Marketing)
18. ONI Candidate Assessment Program V5.02A (Marketing)
19. Superintendent Viral Campaign
20. Iris (Marketing)
21. I Love Bees

In reminder, Halo 4 is not released yet so that is why it is not in this list.
You deserve many more thanks for this CIA931. ;)

I'm quite sure that 343 Industries have an all-encompassing ethic towards the franchise.

Yea I'm sure about that also, 343i gave me feeling when they started doing Halo. I support 343i with this.
I do have to say, that the canon policy is something that is there, and will obviously effect anything else that is contradicting each other.
Though this canon order is for an order of everything in Halo, which means only thing that effects it hugely is a direct statment from 343i.
When Does the Halo CE Campaign missions fit in ?

Hmm thats something I've been wondering a lot. Should I or should I leave it. There is a book called The flood that is acually the events of CE or CEA. Now that you mention it. I'll add them in.

Thanks i have been following the guide because i wanted to know more of the cannon because i love the universe. Been fan since day one of halo
New Update.
I added Halo CE/CEA in.
Though I put it in the way it fits best, with TF.
Meaning that [B/G] means Book and Game.
It didn't feel right having the Game level on top or below of the chapter the level is in so I merged them together. And I feel that it's better off that way.
Below is events of Halo CE/CEA or in a better way to say it, everything that happens during the events of it. Happy Playing Folks

[B] TF Should End here...
I got to some back tracking this time. Below is a Halo Game, Book, Comic. Plus Halo Legends order. I wanted to do a simple order for folks that don't have any limited edition content, meaning Halseys Journal is not in this order sadly. This is the canon order during its prime days. Where I didn't include marketing canon or extra tibits.
Note that I didn't indlude Halo TFOR, TF, FS bonus content. This is becuase some people wont have the updated books.

Shouldn't you have the start of the Human-Covenant war on your timeline?

Ohh thats an interesting idea... I shall put a bracket next to the events where the war starts and war ends.
Awesome, and by the way, your thread here is simply amazing, awesome job!
If you were wanting to add a few big event tickets into your timeline you could add the last bit of the The Impossible Life and the Possible Death of Preston J. Cole story.

The part where he managed to kill... I forget, I think it was upwards of 150+ Covenant warships in one go pretty much with very small losses(I actually don't remember reading about any losses).

Also the battle involving Unyielding Hierophant would also be very notable for the Covenant losses.

I don't know if you are interested or not with adding those types of history notes, but it would be pretty neat. I've always wanted to make a Halo timeline involving all notable events, battles, statistics and a few other various things... But it seemed far too daunting to take on myself.

Ok I'll say a few things. Though I don't have a problem with footnotes and all. I shall add them when I get time later today.
Below is the reason I don't put events detailed in reports(Not saying the report's doesn't get in look at 2552's December Section for example), "the impossible life and possible death of preston j. Cole" is a report after all. But I shall now put a footnote where that would be.

On B-net I recently got a PM of a problem but not a problem I'd like to address it as it will help to understand this thread more.

His problem was with the file type reports (more noticed in the impossible life and the possible death of preston j. Cole) that parts in it were not in order.
Meaning that in the impossible life and possible death of preston j. Cole has the date march 12, 2481 and that should be in the 2481 area and so on.

Well I answered him by saying the file reports were put in the area of when they were made like the impossible life and possible death was made in december 31, 2552 so that goes in the 2552 december area.

I hope this helps as I should have mentioned this at the start as I had a long thought about if I should make them when they were made or put the dates said in the reports. Thanks to the guy that pointed that out.

If you want to ask me a question please post or pm me, I'll answer if I can as I got more spare time now and would like to answer people's questions about halo canon.
Thanks to a recent thought I found out something about Halo 4:Forward Unto Dawn(Lasky's memory segments.
It happens after April 2 2526 thanks to info given in Episode 1. In Chylers Silvas terminal there's two transmissions. One dated 24 March 2526, then one dated 2 April 25--.(probably 2526)
And with this info, the UNSC go public with the Covenant sometime after March 1st(thanks to Halo Genesis page 5 with ONI discussing making the Covenant threat known.
And the first main source that it went public was in 6 April 2526(thanks to Halsey's Journal giving a news report on Bliss.
Making it that either Corbulo Academy was starting to get a little secretive of this threat, news didn't get to Corbulo Academy, or that the Attack happens before/during 6th April 2526.
Either way it happens in 2526 and definitely after the 2 April 2526.
Hope this helps anyone understand why/where and how I placed halo 4:Forward Unto Dawn.
