Best format for master file archive?

Original footage is XDCAM EX (35 mbit).

Rewrapped to ProRes422 with Catalyst browse and edited in latest version of FCPX.

The most natural is to export as self-contained ProRes422 files.

However, it looks like I can also export back to XDCAM EX.

Will I retain the quality, thus much smaller files?

And - most important. Will the EX master file be played back OK?

I reckon that ProRes422 would be a better choice, given the compatibility. But I am getting a bit low on disk space....
