Ignat seems to be watching an old soccer game: it was a match Russia - Latvia of 2004. The ice hockey game which Anton was watching is even older. It was a match during the Olympic games in Salt Lake City in 2002 (Russia vs. USA).
The car number plates shown in "Moscow, 1992" don't match the actual Russian license plates of 1992.

The trolleybus which hits Zavulon is a "Svarz-Ikarus", a modified Hungarian bus. The scene in the movie is taking place around New Year's Eve of 2006, however, the last Svarz-Ikarus was removed from service in October 2004 (the shooting of the scene took place in Winter 2003).
In the end, the faces of Geser and Zavulon are soaking wet; Anton's face, however, is dry.

When the plane flying to Samarqand experiences difficulties during the lift off, the landing gear brushes against the trees. A pilot in the background screams "Landing gear!". Then the landing gear starts being retracted. However, in the final shot of the plane, the landing gear is fully extended.
Near the beginning, when Tamerlan is sat under his horse examining the map of the maze-like fort where the Chalk of Destiny is kept, he traces his finger over the maze and accidentally pokes his finger through the bottom-right hand corner of the map, which results in inspiring his attack on the fort. There is also a hole towards the centre of the map. Later, when Anton breaks into the archives he finds the same map, which now has the hole towards the centre, but no hole at the bottom right-hand corner at all.

The photographer taking pictures on Yegor's birthday shoots multiple pictures, and electric sounds of the film transporter are audible. However, the camera bag is of a Zenit camera, and the objective name is "Zenitar-MS". Zenit is a mechanical camera without an electric motor. The photographer takes a series of shots of Anton partying, with one shot per second. However, the flash used on the camera (either a Unomat, or a Vivitar flash) normally needs 3 to 5 seconds to recharge.
When Alisa drives to Galina's daughter, the interior of her car is an Audi-TT (the car she drove in Night Watch). The exterior, however, is a Mazda RX8. The reason for the car change is that in the meantime, the Audi was stolen. The flight from Moscow to Samarqand was supposed to take place from the Domodedovo airport. However, there are only runways 14R, 14L, 32R and 32L in Domodedovo. The plane, however, is taking off from run-way 02, and the international terminal of the Vnukovo airport is to the left.
The Mazda could never fit through a window of the Kosmos hotel - the windows there are only 2x2 meters in size.
