Does a friend need to have all DLC to be able to play with me?
I have most of the DLC and he is thinking about buying it but cant afford all the DLC I have at the moment. So my question is am I backward compatible to him if he just gets base game?
I of course realize that he will not be able to play any of my DLC stuff but if he starts a game will our versions be compatible. Some games prevent this by having completely different versions of a game if someone has DLC and everyone must have the same DLC to be able to play at all.

I know exactly what you mean, because I have had firsthand experience of this ''version incompatibility'' you described above (Dungeon Siege III).

Rest assured that this is absolutely not the case in Dungeon Defenders. As a matter of fact, some missions can be shared. In other words, the party could freeload off the host !

only the shards require all parties to have them

^ Yes, as long as another user or yourself with the dlc host the maps your friend will be able to join you. However, for the Eternia Shards complete DLC he will also need that dlc to be able to play with you , however the others don't require it.

Well if we are nitpicking:
add:
oasis + monsterfest
shipwreck ruins + monsterfest
lifestream hollow + monsterfest

And some challenges that use shard maps:
portal defense
war of the djinn
riddle of the deep
part 1 of assault pack (misty forest), part 2 uses lifestream hollow

And nightmare mode --> get the shards pack.
