Expendable. Future flights will go on Falcon Heavy or the upgraded Falcon 9.

When you say upgraded Falcon 9 are you referring to the Block 5 you mentioned here? Timing fits.

Yes. Block 5 is the final upgrade of the Falcon architecture. Significantly improves performance & ease of reusability. Flies end of year.
