The third Gaia data release (Gaia DR3) consists of the set of data released as Gaia Early Data Release 3 on 3 December 2020 complemented with new data released on 13 June 2022. The set of data released as Gaia Early Data Release 3 (Gaia EDR3) on 3 December 2020 comprises:
In Gaia Data Release 3 (Gaia DR3), the above set of data is complemented with new products released on 13 June 2022:
The new data set neither contains new astrometry nor new photometric calibrations such that the following elements are in common for and apply to both Gaia EDR3 and Gaia DR3:
Note on the table for planetary transits: the data in the table gaiadr3.vari_planetary_transit, originally published on 13 June 2022, contained serious errors and users were advised on 23 June 2022 not to use them. On 7 February 2023, the original, erroneous table was renamed to gaiadr3.vari_planetary_transit_13june2022 and replaced by a new table with the (original) name vari_planetary_transit.For more information, see https://www.cosmos.esa.int/web/gaia/data-release-3

|Mission description||Gaia is a European space mission providing astrometry, photometry, and spectroscopy of more than 1000 million stars in the Milky Way.
Also data for significant samples of extragalactic and Solar system objects is made available.
The Gaia Archive contains deduced positions, parallaxes, proper motions, radial velocities, and brightnesses.
Complementary information on multiplicity, photometric variability, and astrophysical parameters is provided
for a large fraction of sources.
