Xbox.com describes the DLC as follows:

REQUIRES LATEST TITLE UPDATE FOR DRAGON AGE: ORIGINS (installed automatically if you play while connected to Xbox LIVE).

The archdemon lies dead--and yet in coastal Amaranthine, strange darkspawn still plague the land. As the newly appointed commander of the Grey Wardens, you must rebuild your shattered stronghold, recruit new Wardens to the cause, and defeat this terrifying menace. Includes:

(1) A brand new campaign.
(2) Five new party members — plus the return of an old favorite.
(3) Six new specializations.
(4) Nearly 70 new player abilities.

To begin this epic adventure: From the main menu, select New Game, then either import your character from Dragon Age: Origins or create a new, high-level hero! There are no refunds for this item. For more information, see www.xbox.com/live/accounts.
You'll also need a hefty 2GB worth of free space for the download on your HD too.

In this DLC you'll be adventuring around Amaranthine with the goal of discovering the truth behind the Darkspawn. You'll be able to import your main character from your previous game, or you can choose to start afresh as a Warden from Orlais.

You'll be tasked with facing fearsome new foes which include Inferno Golem, Spectral Dragon, and an entity known only as The Architect.
