Currently I'm siiting on a total military strength of 6902. With my Effective Military Strength being exactly half that since I haven't played any multiplayer yet and it's sitting at %50. So does anyone have a definitive answer about how high my EMS has to be to get the best possible ending. I have full paragon bar as well if that matters.
So how high does your EMS have to be to get the best ending?
5000. The only difference is a couple extra seconds right before the credits, and you can watch that on YouTube if you don't want to obsess over trying to get it that high (especially since you pretty much need to play online to get it that high).
The EMS needs to be 5000. So you either need 10,000 total strength (which I think is impossible), or you need to play online. I had 7,000-ish, and got my Galactic Readiness to about 70%, and that got it up to 5000-ish. And that 7000 was me doing everything I could.
My EMS was at 7,136 when I finished the game but I didn't get the extra scene at the end. I'm pretty sure you need to have your EMS in order before going on the
Priority: Horizon Priority: Cerberus Headquarters mission, which I did not.
Edit: I confirmed this myself last night.

How do you know this?
I'd rather not look at that yet... I take my Mass Effect real serious!
