I play ME3 on PC.
I have played through a number of times without issue, but recently I installed the Citadel DLC and was able to play through that fine. I went back and started a new game and everything has been going fine until I hit a certain point in the Sanctuary Tower. At this point I have received the last recorded message from Miranda, climbed up the ladder and cleared the corridor. This is just before getting on the short tram ride. The game crashes every time I walk through the doorway. I've tried several different times making attempts walking, running, walking backwards and sideways and at an angle. I've tried reloading my quicksave just before going through the corridor and a slightly earlier autosave just after clearing the corridor. Crashes every time. I had an issue very early on in ME3 before any patches where it would sometimes crash at this point, but haven't had it with at least a half-dozen play thoughs since.
As an aside I have double checked that my graphics drivers are up to date.

Also as a note I did try restarting the Sanctuary mission from the beginning and got the same thing.
