I notice in Fallout 3 Data files on the loading menu that I can tick the addon expansions

Anchorage
Broken Steel
Pointlookout
The Pitt
Zeta

Ive left them all untick with only Fallout 3 enable obviously. 

Question is is it better to finish the game first then enable the addons & play them through or doesn't it matter other than if I do tick them now I will have more quests & better items to get ingame but will I ruin the storyline?

Apart from Broken Steel they all add new areas that are unaffected by events in the main game, essentially large side missions.

No harm in enabling them really.

Now broken steel increases the level cap from 20 to 30, adds new weapons and enemies (later on) and adds missions post the original main mission ending.

So broken steel does change the ending slightly to allow the game to carry on when previously it finished.

One benefit of broken steel is that you can do side missions after you've finished the main quest if you prefer to power through the main mission first.
