All of those are listed as full price to me, are you using one of the subscription services?

I'm told they should be free downloads under "Extra Content" in the game's library entry.

This seems to be a bit broken right now.

I was puzzled initially when I checked ME2 and could still see the DLC Bundle selling for $20, but it turns out if you go into the game in your library and go to Extra Content you can add the individual DLCs there. Origin is atrocious though and will refresh the page and take you back to the top after you add one, so it took me a while to make it through the whole list and add what I was missing.

ME3's is completely broken, the "add" button is not there and has instead an error about not being able to display the price for this item.

DAO is even worse, since it seems to have simply disappeared from my Origin library, so there's always that. I never got DA2 so can't comment on how this one's working. Hopefully EA fix these issues soon (yeah right...)
