Mass Relay's are technological traps set by the Reapers to help speed up the process of technological advancement so that they can prepare for the harvesting of the Galaxy. The Relay's are used by many species to travel great distances across the Galaxy quickly. Project Arrival was a mission to destroy the Alpha Relay which allowed access to all of the systems. This would delay the Reapers invading and overwhelming the Galaxy so easily, although at the cost of an entire solar system.
