Continuity mistake: When Pamela Landy is looking at Jason Bourne's induction paperwork, the date of his induction is 06-01-1999. However, the date of his first assassination (Neski) is 1998. The assassination of Kyriacou is also listed as having taken place in 1998. Both dates are obviously before he had completed the Treadstone induction.

Continuity mistake: The conversation Bourne has with Landy at the end of The Bourne Supremacy is repeated in this film, about an hour and fifteen minutes in - the conversation is absolutely word-for-word identical, so clearly it's the same one. However, in Supremacy, it is a bright, sunny day, but in Ultimatum, the weather is overcast with snow on the ground. Landy's phone rings in Supremacy, but vibrates in Ultimatum. Finally, the other agent doesn't enter her office during the phone call in Supremacy.
Factual error: When Bourne is traveling to London on the Eurostar from Paris, immediately after the 'flashback' where Marie floats away after being killed, there are two helicopter shots of the Eurostar traveling to London. The second (far away) shot shows the train passing over a motorway. The train is actually traveling towards Paris, and therefore away from London. The motorway is the M20 and the bridge is approximately 3 miles west of junction 9 for Ashford (Kent). The train would have been 10 minutes away from entering the Channel Tunnel.
Factual error: When Jason is at the internet cafe googling the financial company, the address that comes up for Sydney is not technically possible. The street name (Market Street) is real, but the street number was 18017 which is not possible as the street is only a few blocks long and ends at about 400.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, in the flashback when Bourne recalls his training process several years ago, Hirsch looks younger, but Bourne looks just like the present date, with an edgy and thin face, opposite to the round-childish face that he had then (which we are reminded of during all the movie via photos in his portfolio).
Continuity mistake: When Desh goes to meet Nicki, he parks his scooter. Walking behind him(from left to right) is a guy wearing a black shirt with orange stripes. The camera then switches to Bourne and then back to Desh. The man in the shirt is now seen walking towards Desh(from the left) but is still at least 40 feet away from him.
Revealing mistake: In the commentary, the director states that the crowds in Tangiers were real, not hired extras, and that therefore there was an effort to avoid having them look at the camera. However, when you can see the crowd walking up a street, their backs toward the camera, while one man (to the right) faces the camera while holding his cell phone up. He is obviously taking pictures of the camera crew, probably unaware of the fact that he is being filmed, as it seems the shot is filmed from afar.

Other mistake: In the paper file regarding Project Blackbriar Jason Bourne's bloodtype is noted as A+, but on David Webb's dogtags it's O-. Since David Webb is his real identity, O- must be his real blood type. If Bourne was injured and known to have blood type A+ (as it is stated in the docs), the person treating him would believe he was capable of receiving A+, A-, O+ and O-. However, since his real blood type is O-, he is compatible with type O- exclusively. So this would mean a 75% chance of receiving the wrong blood type in an emergency.

Factual error: When the first assassin drives to Waterloo station to take out Simon Ross and Bourne, he is driving a BMW 3 series with a 2006 UK licence plate. However the events in this film are meant to follow on six weeks after the previous film, which make it still set in 2004.
Character mistake: As Jason reads the Guardian Newspaper, he finds an article about himself entitled, "Who is Jason Bourne?" The caption for the article reads, "His code name is Jason Bourne, but he had many identities, each one seemingly more deadly then the next," instead of "more deadly than the next."
