Mass Effect 3: Planet Scanning Collectibles & Rewards

The galaxy is a big place, full of hidden rewards. In Mass Effect 3, you can freely travel using the Normandy to scan and pick up rewards on certain planets. Each star system requires more than one scan to find all the rewards, and too many scans will garner unwanted interest from the Reapers. When the giant Reaper ships appear, make a run for it or it’s an instant game-over. Otherwise, make your scans and push forward to uncover credits, War Assets, and even special upgrades. (To make use of the upgrades you find, go to Liara’s office and use her computer terminal.)

There is an error in the description. The error is “each planet requires more than 1 scan”. It should read “each solar system may require more than one scan”.
