The Citadel is the Combine head-quarters on earth, located in City 17, and the main location of Wallace Breen.

At the end of Half-Life 2, Gordon Freeman enters the Citadel in search of Breen and Eli Vance. As Breen trys to open a portal to the Combine world, Gordon destroys the machine, and ruptures the Citadel.

During Half-Life 2: Episode One, Gordon and Alyx Vance re-enter the broken Citadel to temporally fix the power core, so they have time to make an escape from City 17. They succeed in stabilizing the core, but only for a short period of time. As the duo are making their escape, the Citadel explodes, sending a great energy wave from the broken core.
