ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, nearby ; X-ray sources Keywords: Galaxies: individual: M31 - X-rays: galaxies Abstract: The largest Local Group spiral galaxy, M31, has been completely imaged for the first time, obtaining a luminosity lower limit about 1035erg/s in the 0.2-4.5keV band. Our XMM-Newton EPIC survey combines archival observations along the major axis, from June 2000 to July 2004, with observations taken between June 2006 and February 2008 that cover the remainder of the D25 ellipse. The main goal of the paper is to study X-ray source populations of M31. An X-ray catalogue of 1897(*) sources was created with 914 detected for the first time. Source classification and identification were based on X-ray hardness ratios, spatial extent of the sources, and cross correlation with catalogues in the X-ray, optical, infrared and radio wavelengths. We also analysed the long-term variability of the X-ray sources and this variability allows us to distinguish between X-ray binaries and active galactic nuclei (AGN). Furthermore, supernova remnant classifications of previous studies that did not use long-term variability as a classification criterion could be validated. Including previous Chandra and ROSAT observations in the long-term variability study allowed us to detect additional transient or at least highly variable sources, which are good candidate X-ray binaries. (*) the final catalog of table5 icludes 1948 sources. File Summary:

Note (2): fvarmax>100, indicates that the source is a transient object.
Global notes: Note (G2): Count rate and flux in XID band (0.2-4.5keV) Note (G3): HRi=(R(i+1)-R(i))/(R(i+1)+R(i)) where Ri are the count rates in the energy bands 1 to 5 and band 1 = 0.2-0.5keV, band 2 = 0.5-1.0keV, band 3 = 1.0-2.0keV, band 4 = 2.0-4.5keV, band 5 = 4.5-12keV Note (G4): First character for EPIC PN, second for MOS1, third for MOS2; the letters are 'T' (true, source is in field of view of instrument), or 'F' (false) otherwise. Note (G6): Classifications used (see Table 6) as follows: fg Star = foreground star <fg Star> = foreground star candidate AGN = active galactic nucleus <AGN> = AGN candidate Gal = galaxy <Gal> = galaxy candidate GCl = galaxy cluster <GCl> = galaxy cluster candidate SSS = supersoft source in M 31 <SSS> = supersoft source candidate in M 31 SNR = supernova remnant in M 31 <SNR> = supernova remnant candidate in M 31 GlC = source in globular cluster <GlC> = source in globular cluster candidate XRB = X-ray binary in M 31 <XRB> = X-ray binary candidate in M 31 <hard> = HR2-e_HR2>-0.2 or only HR3 and HR4 defined, and no other classification
