After the two first failed attempts, Promise and Resilience, Prodromos is the Initiative's first successful outpost founded by Pathfinder Ryder on Habitat 1, otherwise known as Eos. The outpost was only established when conditions of the planet improved significantly after Ryder activated a Remnant vault; two previous efforts to settle the planet failed due to the harsh environment and hostile presence. It is run by Mayor August Bradley. It can serve as a scientific or militaristic outpost, depending on Ryder's choice.
Prodromos was settled by the Andromeda Initiative in 2819, organized by Foster Addison. Prior to its settling, the area was known as Fairwinds Basin as the high cliff walls surrounding the area partially protected it from the deadly radiation that had existed prior to Ryder's activation of the remnant vault.
Prodromos surrounds a lake and consists of six single-floor buildings, two double-floor buildings and four shuttle landing pads. Many of the buildings have water-silos on the side. There is a Research Center building on the northwestern side of the lake, a shop on the eastern side and a Forward Station on the north-eastern side. Most buildings do not have an explained use, but all contain some form of furniture suggesting what takes part in them.
Prodromos also contains a dedicated landing space for the Tempest at the north of the lake.

- The name "Prodromos" is suspected to come from the Greek translation of the word "Forerunner".
- For reasons unknown, a female Initiative member can be found staggering around, apparently inebriated, close to the Tempest landing area, directly south of where Ryder and squadmates spawn upon exiting the ship.
