"The Mass Effect 3 server is unavailable at this time", but only for me it seems

[ Edited ]

When I start up Mass Effect 3 I get the message "The Mass Effect 3 server is unavailable at this time" when it attempts to contact the EA servers. I've restarted Mass Effect 3, Origin, my PC and my router. I've not had this problem before. A friend in the same city as me and using the same ISP is able to connect. What might be the problem?

 

If I click on the "Connect to EA Servers" button the error message comes up pretty quickly, like it's received a negative response to the connection attempt rather than it spending ages trying to connect then timing out.

 

Edit: It works now.

I'm having exactly the same trouble, Origin recently updated and now i can't get on the MP, any idea how it was fixed?

Change your Origin password, that should fix it.

 

You can change it back again, but so long as it's changed
