Dark Angel series timeline & background informations (Edited to add some informations I got from kimiM. A big THANK YOU to her!)
Created by the events in the series and the informations provided by the official books to the series:
Dark Angel: Before the Dawn (2002), Dark Angel: Skin Game (2003) & Dark Angel: After the Dark (2003) written by Max Allan Collins
Dark Angel: The Eyes Only Dossier (2003) written by D.A. Stern
I highly recommend every fan of Dark Angel to read the books! I consider them as secondary series canon since they are based on the ideas the producers had for season 3, which we sadly didn’t get.

The series starts:
Max (19 years old) leaves
Max first crosses paths with Logan, joins the Informant Net & learns that 11 of her siblings escaped as well
Episode 108 Cold Comfort: Herbal wants to take a personal day next Friday because it's the 75th anniversary of the great Bob Marley’s birth (6 February 1945) & he’d like to attend the memorial concert they’re having out there in Portland for him.
Max says "Eleven years ago tonight we escaped from Manticore" (escape was in February 2009)
> So this episode is set in February 2020.
> We know Max and Logan met around August 2019.
February 25th: Penny/Tinga disappears (written on the milk box episode 1.19)
Episode 120 (121 follows):
It's Max and Logan anniversary
> We are in August 2020
Max & three siblings attempt to destroy Manticore & Max is recaptured
3 months later: Max escapes & helps broadcast the location of Manticore's new base then returns to free all the soldiers at the base
Episode 202 (day(s) after 201):
> We are then in November 2020
October 21st: Death of Rachel Berrisford (written on the gravestone episode 2.11)
Freaks escape in November 2020 + 7 month
Senator says "Since the transgenics escaped into our streets seven months ago"
> We know that between 201 and 219 we got more or less 7 months.
> We know now that this episode is set more or less in May or June 2021
About seven months are passing between 2.01 “Designate This” & 2.21 “Freak Nation” (extrapolated from Gem’s pregnancy, which is a result of Manticore’s breeding programme)
Transgenics & transhumans set up shop in
their comrades out from under the noses of cops & Feds
