Timing of evening adhkaar

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
What is the timing of the evening adhkaar? What is the best time for reciting them? Can they be made up later on if one forgets them?

Praise be to Allaah.

The evening (al-masaa’) is a lengthy period, from after ‘asr prayer until ‘ishaa’ prayer – all of this period is called masaa’ (evening). It is the same whether one recites the dhikr at the beginning of this time or at the end, apart from those adhkaar which the reports specifically say should be recited at night, such as reciting Aayat al-Kursi at night. Adhkaar which should be recited specifically at night should be recited at night, and those which should be recited specifically during the day should be recited during the day. With regard to making them up if one forgets them, I hope that he will be rewarded for doing that.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
