According to this Marvel timeline:

In 1973:

"Early" scenes of X-Men: Days of Future Past are set.
Mark I Sentinels are created. Between 1973 and 1996, Trask produces 8,732 Mark I Sentinels for the governments of the United States, China, Russia, Israel, Saudi Arabia, France, India and the United Kingdom.

In 2013:

The year that "The Wolverine" is set in.
Mark X Sentinels announced.

In 2015:

Professor X and Magneto meet Wolverine at an airport.

In 2023:

"Future" scene of X-Men: Days of Future Past are set.

So effectively, X-Men: Days of Future Past contains scenes from 1973 and 2023. The Wolverine end credit scene takes place in 2015.

That Wikia is unsourced, where did these dates originate? – user209 May 26 '14 at 3:47
I'm assuming they've originated from a superfan who has kept a tab on the dates. I can update this answer when I get home and search for a second source of confirmation on the dates – Andrew Martin May 26 '14 at 8:41
@Keen: After doing a bit more digging, it's just someone who has kept track of the dates. Wolverine is set in 2013 and the airport scene is labelled "two years later", i.e. 2015. X-Men Days of Future Past is set in both 1973 and 2023 according to numerous sources online. – Andrew Martin May 26 '14 at 12:51
Now I wonder 2 more things, when was weapon x in this timeline and when was the "new" new future in DOFP... – Jared May 27 '14 at 21:36
Are they mentioned on the timeline in the linked page? – Andrew Martin May 27 '14 at 21:39
