In the framework of the constrained minimal supersymmetric standard model (CMSSM) we discuss the impact of the pseudo-scalar Higgs boson in delineating regions of the parameters which are consistent with cosmological data and E821 data on the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon. For the large values of the parameter tan β > 50, cosmologically allowed corridors of large m0, M1/2 are opened, due to the s-channel pseudo-scalar exchange in the pair annihilation of the lightest of the neutralinos to or , which dominates in this region. However, no such corridors are found for values tan β > 50. Combining cosmological and E821 data puts severe upper limits on the sparticle masses. We find that at LHC, but even at a e+e- linear collider with center of mass energy s1/2 = 800 GeV, such as TESLA, supersymmetry can be discovered, if it is based on the CMSSM.
