Updating Masterpage on all site collection on SharePoint 2010


I need to update a master page but there are multiple site collection on multiple web applications. I just need to do a small update but I need to apply this change to all site collections. I did do some research and did find some posts but none seem to be working as expected. I would prefer to use PowerShell

Does anyone know of a solution?

Thank you

Use SharePoint Designer 2010 and take a copy of the master page prior to making any changes. If your change is not successful,  designer tool will ease out your way to rollback the changes.

Downtime scheduling is necessary.

Thanks Mohit, I have managed to update the masterpages by exporting the masterpage before doning any changes. Then did the necessary changes and uploaded it to all site collections using powershell.
