Metastable superheated and supercooled vortex lattices in NbSe2 crystals were probed
with fast transport measurements over a wide range of field and temperature. The limit of
metastability of the superheated vortex lattice defines a line in the phase diagram that lies
below the superconducting transition and is clearly separated from it. This line is
identified as the spinodal for the superheated vortex lattice and is in good agreement with
