OBJECTIVE: Locate the Prophet of Truth and the Index.
You are Master Chief again. You have a Needler. Take out the Jackals. Then, take out the two Brutes (larger enemies), grenades help here. Pick up the Brute Plasma Rifle (red version) and any other weapons you can. Wait for the door at the end of this great hall to open. You'll hear Cortana (your hologram friend) tell you to do so, you need to place her on one of the pedestals near the door. Actually, I didn't do that, instead I just waited around a bit and the doors opened.

Go through the two purple doors. Take cover while shooting the enemies up on the raised area. When the raised area is clear, go up there. Go through the door there and you'll be in a large domed room with bright white light beaming down from the dome highlighting a central tower. Make your way toward the beam of light, killing as you go. When you get to Cortana, she'll tell you that she has revered the gravity elevator, so drop on down through the hole in the floor.
Kill the enemies then go through the purple door then the next door. Here there is a purple door to your left and red door to your right. Go through the left purple door and make your way around the path, killing the Brutes and Jackals from as far a distance as you can. You'll find some Covenant Carbines and Needlers in various ammo bins if you want either of those. Go through the purple door and the next purple door in front of you.
OBJECTIVE: Rescue the Marines being held in the detention-block.
You'll be told by Cortana that she is picking up Marine signals from below you. Continue along the path, clearing it, then go through the next door. Clear the area from enemies attacking from the sides then stock up on any weapons/ammo that you may want from the various ammo bins. Then enter the lower central structure: an elevator and jump in.
Cortana tells you that you have reached the detention level. There are some Brute Shots (grenade launchers) around. Clear the area with one of these fine weapons. Before you go any further, I recommend having a Brute Shot as one weapon and then dual wielding some other weapons.
Find the pink glowing hole in the floor, then drop down. Now you will see two pink glowing holes in the floor. One takes you up, one takes you down. Take the one down. More Brute Shot weapons in front of you. Clear the area, then find Cortana near the door you should go through. Go down the path and through the next purple door which will open up upon one detention area. Clear the hall and the Marines will be released from their cells. You have reinforcements.
Exit back out and travel up one level via the pink glowing elevator. Find the open door on this level that leads to the detention area and clear this hall. The second batch of Marines will be freed. (Note: the way I did it was to go down two levels, find the Marines on the bottom level, then went up a level, and rescued the second batch. If you want, rescue the upper-level batch of Marines first, then go down a level, and rescue the other Marines. Either way, rescue both sets of Marines, one each on the two lower levels).
Time to head back up to the central main elevator. You'll see hostile reinforcements coming down the lift. Shoot them. When clear, ride the main lift up.
OBJECTIVE: Follow the Prophet of Truth to the far tower.
You'll hear the Prophet Truth broadcasting on the intercom. Clear this central elevator room and then exit out to the hallway/path. Kill the flying insects and the other enemies. Go through the next door, basically backtracking at this point. In this hallway/path, you'll hear the Prophet again and you'll hear Cortana tell you that she has a fix on the Prophet and that there is an exit nearby. Continue to backtrack. You'll soon come upon two Hunters. Do what you can against them, grenades help. The Needler is basically useless.
Go down the path/ramp to the door below. There is ammo in this area. Go through the door. Here you'll see Cortana. Step into the purple/blue transporter. You'll end up on the other side. Kill the enemies along the leftside balcony and be sure to watch out for the rightside, too. Take either the left or right path around and kill the enemies down in the drainage aqueduct.
Follow the aqueduct and then go up either the right or left ramp and around. Here is another aqueduct. You'll also find a weapon bin with lots of Brute Plasma Rifles. I recommend dual wielding them. Take out the enemies that spawn then walk into the glowing purple transport device and go through the purple door.
Go through the left purple door then along the hallway and you'll enter a circular room with two levels. Kill off the hovering elites, the brutes and the rest of the enemies in here. Then, go through the purple door and the next few purple doors until you get to another glowing purple transport device. On the other side, note the Energy Swords, the Beam Rifles, and the seven or so blue energy shields.
Use either the right or left path, past the blue energy shields, and you'll come to another aqueduct. Kill the Jackals and the Brutes, then follow the dry aqueduct and go up either the right or left ramp and go around to the next purple glowing transport device.
OBJECTIVE: Stop the Prophet of Truth from boarding his Phantom.
On the other side, go through the door and work your way up the path. Ahead of you will be several Brutes using Brute Shots (grenade launchers). I recommend simply running by them. Strafe as you run to avoid taking a direct hit then run through the door at the top.
You will be outside again. On your left you'll see a weapons bin with Brute Plasma Rifles, dual wield them. Across from you, the blue-lighted building is where you need to go. Take the right dirt path around to the right, pick up a Brute Shot from a weapons bin, then go down into the central pit, then up a left path (if facing the door) which will lead you to the door that you are trying to reach. Along the way, kill anybody in your path, especially the Energy Sword invisible enemies. Before you go through the door, dump your Brute Shot and grab dual wield Plasma Rifles or Brute Plasma Rifles. Go through the door.
You are back inside. Make your way through this cluttered storage room then, the next hall, grab the Fuel Rod Cannon from a dead enemy, then into another two-level circular room. Clear this room with the help of the Fuel Rod Cannon. When out of ammo, or when ready, head through the next purple door.

Cortana will tell you that you'll have to go directly through the mausoleum, this purple/pink lined bridge. Stay back a bit and watch as the enemies fight each other. If you like, you can toss a couple of Plasma Grenades in on the unsuspecting Brutes while their backs are turned. When the area is clear, grab a Brute Shot from the weapons bin. Move forward along the bridge. About half way over, you'll get attacked again. Use your Brute Shot to your advantage. This is a nasty area. You'll have various elite, spec-ops forces and several Hunters to deal with. Keep your distance, fire the Brute Shot, then revert to dual-wield Plasma Rifles. You can also use a Fuel Rod Cannon or a Carbine if you find them. Then, stock up on any ammo you can and go through the door.
You will now be in a large circular council room. Cortana suggests that you may want to "sit this one out." Do so for as long as possible, watching as enemies destroy enemies. Be patient and wait until they notice you. Then, get in on the action. Use your Brute Shot until you run out of ammo. There are a bunch of spec-ops elite, Hunters, Brutes, etc. Then, revert to either your Energy Sword or dual-wield Plasma Rifles. If you're lucky, you may find a Fuel Rod Gun. As always, well-tossed Plasma Grenades also come in handy. When the room is clear, Cortana will tell you that she has picked up two more Marine signals. You need to help them.
The previously locked red door will now turn purple and more enemies will come out. Kill them and go through. Here is another purple/pink lined bridge. Go along it and you'll get a cutscene of a Prophet being eaten by a small pod insect.
