Super sim Spore will get its first expansion pack in the form of Galactic Adventures this Spring, according to an invite from Electronic Arts. And, no, the Spore Creepy and Cute Parts Pack doesn't count!

While retailers like Amazon, GameStop and Play have had Spore Galactic Adventures listed for a March release for a week or two now, EA made the expansion official today. It's planning to reveal details on the Maxis-developed expansion later this month at an event in San Francisco.

And, going by the wording of the invite, it sounds like EA and Maxis have additional Spore products in the pipe for 2009. We're RSVPing now and we'll let you know exactly what the "Spore line-up for 2009" is looking like in a fortnight.
