This thread will cover all final phases of the Dawn mission, the end of which is not certain at this point.

XMO3 was suppose to be the final orbit, but now plans have changed and it will move into a new higher altitude and higher phase orbit soon. This will be XMO4.

An interesting monthly journal for January details the plan:
