For the short story, see Mars.

Mars (also known as Sol IV) was a planet in the Sol system, inhabited by the Ice Warriors and later by Human colonists. The word Martian is often used by humans as a by-word for aliens in general.



Only Mars and Peladon contained deposits of the valuable ore, trisilicate. (DW: The Curse of Peladon)



Remote past

The Doctor theorised that, circa 12 million BCE, the Fendahl passed from its homeworld to Mars on its way to Earth, fleeing the efforts of the Time Lords to trap it in a time loop. (DW: Image of the Fendahl)

The age of the Ice Warriors

The first sentient race on Mars were the Martian civilization who would in later eras be known as the Ice Warriors. In this early era, they were a peaceful race of honour bound beings who were artisans as well as builders. They had only ever hunted for food but never fought one another and thus never experienced any form of war. Whilst favouring colder climates, they were known to had populated the equator of Mars though the construction of their shell shaped buildings were designed to reflect heat. In this time, their world was vibrant and alive. Water was plentiful and there were canals present on the planet with the Martians living in peace for 12,000 years. This civilization was shattered when a segment of the Key to Time was discovered by time travellers and its removal led to the creation of a gravity well that caused untold devastation to the planet.

For the next three decades, the civilization was devastated by the resultant climatic changes. Some among the Martians managed to get off world but many more remained on Mars where they fought against themselves for food and shelter thus becoming more of a warrior race. After another thirty years, the energies from the stolen piece of the Key to Time had finally been spent and allowed the ground to settle. Those that remained of the Martians emerged onto their world with the hope of rebuilding their civilisation. However, it was the Ice Lord Izdaal who discovered that the damaged atmosphere meant that ultraviolet radiation led to many of his kind's children becoming sick. Bringing the matter to his government, he declared that Mars was no longer capable of supporting life but he was ignored. To prove what he had said, he stood before the "Red Dawn" and was killed by the radiation which showed that their world was dying. This led both to the salvation of the race as well as their decline into a conqueror species. (NA: The Key 2 Time - The Judgement of Isskar)

By human prehistory, the Ice Warriors already possessed spaceflight. With their ecosystem dying and becoming more inhospitable, the Ice Warriors, led by Varga, sent an expedition to Earth, but the ship crashed and was frozen in a glacier where it would remain for millennia. (DW: The Ice Warriors)

The Osirians

Around the 8th Millennium BCE, the last flowers on Mars die out. (DW: The Waters of Mars)

Around 5000 BCE, the Osirians reached Mars and set up underground bases there, beneath pyramids that they constructed. Sutekh, was imprisoned in a tomb in Egypt, kept in a state of paralysis by an energy beam transmitted from the main pyramid on Mars itself. A warning message, Beware Sutekh broadcast continually by radio (DW: Pyramids of Mars)

Modern pre-colonisation period

Early 20th century

In 1911. Laurence Scarman picked up this signal on his marconiscope. That same year, Sutekh escaped from his ancient bonds.(DW: Pyramids of Mars)

On 31st October 1938, many Humans across the United States took Orson Welles's radio adaptation of H.G. Wells's The War of the Worlds literally, and believed that Martians had really invaded. (BFA: Invaders from Mars)

Later 20th century

Mars was a target of a series of British manned space probes, overseen by the British Space Centre (a renamed British Rocket Group) and constructed with International Electromatics technology. (MA: Who Killed Kennedy) Mars Probe 6 and Mars Probe 7 made contact with a group of peaceful radioactive humanoids. Another spacecraft, Recovery 7, entered Mars orbit to determine what had happened to earlier probes. (DW: The Ambassadors of Death)

An international mission to Mars shortly after led to contact with the Zoltans, which was made public knowledge and led to a media frenzy. (DWA: Soldiers from Zolta)

This public revelation of the existence of aliens was never acknowledged in any other story.

In 1977, Britain's Mars Probe 13 astronauts accidentally wandered into the city of the Argyre Clan Ice Warriors and were slaughtered after they spied on a research facility. To appease the Ice Warriors, the British government's representative Minister Grayhaven had mission commander Alexander Christian imprisoned (framed for the astronaut's deaths) and agreed to ensure humanity would not return to Mars. For the next two decades, the British secret service spread disinformation that Mars was uninhabitable and sabotaged NASA data in order to discourage Mars future missions. In actual fact, Mars' atmosphere was breathable. (NA: The Dying Days)

In 1994, Michael Rennigan, a lone Human astronaut marooned on desolate and lifeless Mars, found himself aided by unseen friends, namely the Doctor and his companions. (DWM: Rennigan's Record)

The Doctor refers to an extinct Martian civilisation whose intelligence and beauty far surpassed that of his own people, which doesn't seem likely to be a reference to either the Ice Warriors or the Osirians.

In 1997, Britain returned to Mars with the Mars 97 mission - a deliberate plan by Grayhaven and Argyre Clan Lord Xznaal to give the Ice Warriors a pretence for a "retaliatory" conquest of the United Kingdom, with Grayhaven placed in power as a Prime Minister. When it turned out the Ice Warriors were using him to have a chance to wipe out and terraform Earth, Greyhaven wiped out the Argyre's nests on Mars with the Mars 97 Orbiter. Xznaal was defeated soon after by UNIT and the Doctor. (NA: The Dying Days)

Early 21st century through 2095

Circa the dawn of the 21st century, another human space expedition landed on Mars. (BFA: Red Dawn)

On 31st October 2006, the Guinevere One was launched by the British Rocket Group for an intended landing on Christmas Day, but was intercepted by the Sycorax. (DW: The Christmas Invasion)

On 31st July, 2008, the NASA probe Phoenix confirmed the existence of liquid water on the planet. (DW: The Waters of Mars)

In 2041, a three-man mission landed on Mars. (DW: The Waters of Mars)

On July 2058, the first Human colony was established, staffed by an international crew under Adelaide Brooke. On the 21st November 2059, the base was overrun by a sentient, water-based lifeform and the base was destroyed to prevent it reaching Earth. Originally, nobody survived; the Doctor altered time, saving Brooke and two other crew members (though Brooke would kill herself soon after). (DW: The Waters of Mars)

The Ice Warriors had not given up their ambitions to colonise Earth. A strike team was sent to take control of T-Mat, and use it to transport seed pods to Earth that were designed to terraform its environment to an environment more suited to them. (DW: The Seeds of Death)

In the 2080s, the Ice Warriors fought and lost the Thousand Day War with Earth, opening up the planet for Human colonisation and exploitation. (NA: Transit)

The Human colonisation of Mars commenced in 2095. (BNA: Beige Planet Mars)

Colonisation period

By the early 22nd Century, Mars had been partially terraformed into a tourist resort for the wealthy. As the seas and canals were not red enough for the tourists, cranberry juice was poured into them. This human activity led to malevolent, formless entities escaping from the sea's reflective surface; the Doctor and Rose defeated them, with the Doctor believing the threat of the entities returning would force humanity to treat Mars with respect. (DWM: The Cruel Sea) Later in the 22nd Century, Mars had ceased being a pure resort and had residential settlements.

The Doctor and his companions visited Mars in 2157, during the Dalek occupation of Earth. (NA: GodEngine)

A canal on Mars. (BNA: Beige Planet Mars)

Shortly after the Dalek defeat, Anji Kapoor was stranded on Mars for four years. At this time, Ice Warriors would sometimes stage attacks on human workplaces in an attempt to gain independence from humanity; these attacks largely failed. (EDA: Fear Itself)

By the 26th century, the time of Bernice Summerfield, scholars like Benny herself devoted themselves to the study of Ice Warrior culture. (NA: Transit)

In 2545, during the Dalek War, the Daleks were able to seize control of Mars due to a failure to deploy Mars' nuclear deterrent. They would be eventually driven off-world by Earth and its allies. By 2595, Humans celebrated the five hundredth anniversary of the start of Human colonization. (BNA: Beige Planet Mars)

In the 27th century, Mars' President Lithops commissioned the development of a time machine. Alien assassins attempted to use it to erase his timeline; the Doctor stopped them and destroyed the unsafe machine. (DWM: Bus Stop)

Further on

Circa the 39th or 40th century, Mars and the Ice Warriors were part of a Galactic Federation that included Earth, Alpha Centauri and Arcturus. The presence of trisilicate made the planet politically important. (DW: The Curse of Peladon)

In the 40th century, Space Security agent Bret Vyon was born in Colony 16 (DW: The Daleks' Master Plan).

The Doctor knew Bret's sister, Sara Kingdom, also. We do not know if she also grew up on Mars.

In the 82nd century, Mars was privately owned by Josiah W. Dogbolter. (DWM: The Moderator)

By the 2001st century, Mars was now stated to be home to a university of questionable reputation, although no further reference to the planet was made. (DW: The Long Game)

Also around that century, the planet was the subject of question on the Game Station: it was determined, however, that the dish Gaffabeque originated on Lucifer, and not Mars (DW: Bad Wolf)

Uncertain dates

  • Under the influence and control of the Usurians, a colony of humans temporarily moved to Mars, then on to Pluto after overpopulation had made Earth unlivable. (DW: The Sun Makers)
  • The Doctor again travelled to the planet with Leela and visited a terraformed, commercialised Mars abundant with commercialized imagery derived from Human science fiction. (VD: Crimson Dawn)

Earth's Ares IV over Mars in 2032

Mars was first colonized by Humans in 2103 (VOY episode: "The 37's"), and established as a colony of United Earth. Within just a few years, however, a general uprising known as the War of Martian Independence occurred in support of Martian sovereignty (ENT novel: The Romulan War: Beneath the Raptor's Wing.) This movement culminated with the drafting of the Fundamental Declarations of the Martian Colonies, which became one of the most important documents addressing individual rights in Federation history (TOS episode: "Court Martial") and in the independence of the Martian colonies and establishment of the Confederated Martian Colonies. (ENT novel: The Romulan War: Beneath the Raptor's Wing.) In 2161, the Confederated Martian Colonies became one of the first states to join the United Federation of Planets after its founding. (ST reference: Star Charts.) The Martian Federation Councillor was among those being brief about the Genesis Device in 2286. (TNG novel: The Genesis Wave, Book 1)

The Verteron array fires.

In 2155, Mars was the site of the Verteron Array, a powerful device designed to keep asteroids and other planetoids away from Earth and other important locales in the Sol System. That year, the anti-alien terrorist group known as Terra Prime attempted to hijack the array to destroy the headquarters complex of the United Earth Starfleet in order to force all non-Humans out of the Sol System. The attempt failed with the intervention of the crew of Enterprise (NX-01). (ENT episodes: "Demons", "Terra Prime")

As part of Humans' colonization efforts, Mars was in the process of being terraformed in the mid-22nd century, by redirecting comets to impact the planet and release their frozen gases into the thin Martian atmosphere. (ENT episode: "Terra Prime")

Technological breakthroughs made after contact with the Vulcans made terraforming Mars much more feasible and warming the planet was accomplished in a fraction of the time 21st century scientists had predicted. Water and oxygen were liberated from the subterranean permafrost and genetically engineered bacteria were introduced into the terrain. This began the terraforming process. There were colonists on Mars as early as 2103, but they needed atmospheric suits in order to breathe outside a biosphere. Not quite one hundred years after that, Mars possessed a breathable atmosphere. The earliest colonists utilized local Martian resources to build habitable structures, including basaltic regolith. Refined and mixed with water, it forms a crude concrete. This process was far more efficient than trying to bring building materials from Earth. (VOY novel: Mosaic)

Mars is the location of the city of Utopia Planitia, and Starfleet's Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards. (VOY episode: "The 37's"; TNG episode: "Encounter at Farpoint")

Beginning on reference stardate 1/9010, the Mars shipyards were a major contributor of ships to the growing numbers of Loknar-class frigates entering service. (RPG reference: Federation Ship Recognition Manual)

In 2376, Mars was listed as the host location of a current or past marathon. (New Worlds, New Civilizations short story: "The Footfalls of Tradition")


In spite of undergoing the process of terraforming as early as the 22nd century, by the 24th century water covered only 10% of the surface of Mars. Most of it was concentrated in small fresh water lakes which were the result of impact craters. As of 2350 the atmosphere of Mars was fully breathable by Humans, although ultra violet radiation from the sun still required some measure of protection before stepping out onto the surface.

From Muppet Wiki

Off-world real estate from the Sesame Street Monopoly set.

Mars is a planet that orbits Sol, the same star system in which Earth can be found. It is the fourth celestial body classified as a planet, distanced from Earth by between 55 and 100 million kilometers (depending on each planet's orbital coordinates).

As one of the planets in the solar system visible to Earth with the naked eye, Mars has been the subject of great fascination for humans. This was particularly prevalent in the 20th century when telescopes revealed what appeared to be great canyons that covered the surface of the planet, assumed by many to have been created by sentient life forms. As such, hundreds of science-fiction stories have been written about the planet, notably by Edgar Rice Burroughs, H.G. Wells, C.S. Lewis, Isaac Asimov and Ray Bradbury.

The 21st century view of Mars comes from a more practical observation of scientific findings over the past 50 years, including robot missions to the planet. While the search continues for evidence of prehistoric life on even the cellular level, fact has never become a hinderance for human imagination.

Such is the case with Sesame Street’s most famous extra-terrestrial visitors, the Martians. Speaking primarily in a series of "yip-yip"s and "uh-huh"s, these strange explorers have journeyed to Earth from their planet to learn about such odd human concepts as telephones and clocks.

Also from their home planet, but clearly a member of a different species, is the Martian Beauty, a creature equipped with nine sets of various extremities.

Non-terrestrial entities are not the only beings to have left their planet, as proven by Big Bird in a Journey to Ernie segment. The 8'2" 6-year-old once ventured to Mars in his search for Ernie, stopping on the way to ask a native for directions.

Mars is a planet in the Sol System. It is the fourth planet from Sol, after Earth, but before Jupiter.



Interplanetary War

Main article: Interplanetary War

Mars was one of the first worlds colonized by humanity settled in 2080.[1] It has since been terraformed into a planet with near-Earth conditions, becoming home to many. Regardless, Mars was the site of a decisive battle during a period where the United Nations organization transitioned into the United Nations Space Command. The UNSC Marines routed the neo-Communist Koslovics on the planet during a series of brutal conflicts in the 2100's before moving on to destroy the Koslovic and Frieden movements throughout the solar system.[2]

Human-Covenant War

Main article: Human-Covenant War

Once again, Mars was the site of a large scale engagement called the Battle of Mare Erythraeum, set on the fields of Mare Erythraeum. There, Colonel James Ackerson and his UNSC Defense Forces combated against the Covenant Loyalist Army, commanded by Jiralhanae Chieftain Lepidus, a battle the UNSC also lost.[3]

  • Terraforming has transformed the surface of Mars from a former barren and uninhabitable environment into an Earth-like world,[4] [5] despite it still having a red-orange color when seen from space. The Encyclopedia contradicts this, saying that Mars is now "as blue and green as Earth".
  • Mars is the birthplace of Nicole-458, Dutch and Benjamin M. Nunez.

Edward Mars was a United States Marshal who sought to apprehend the fugitive Kate Austen. Their years-long game of cat-and-mouse came to an end when Mars arrested Kate in Australia. He was escorting her on Oceanic Flight 815 to Los Angeles when the plane crashed on the Island. Mars survived three days in excruciating pain, until Sawyer attempted to end his suffering by shooting him in the heart. Sawyer missed the heart and only perforated Mars' lung. Jack then euthanized Mars.


Before the crash

Chasing Kate

Mars arrests Kate for the first time. ("What Kate Did")

Edward Mars arrested Kate for the murder of her biological father, Wayne, in a bus station while she attempted to flee to Tallahassee. While he transported her by car to her arraignment in Iowa, a black horse caused him to veer off the road, allowing Kate to escape from Mars' custody, and making recapturing her a very personal matter to Mars. ("What Kate Did")

He knew that Kate felt guilty about her mother, so he set up a 24-hour stakeout around Diane for when Kate would inevitably show up. Cassidy revealed the extent of the stakeout when she dressed up to look like she was Kate posing as a Bible saleswoman and was tackled by several agents at Diane's front door. Although two agents were sitting in the diner where Diane worked, Cassidy helped Kate by spilling food on her mother so she would find Kate in the restroom away from the agents. ("Left Behind")

Mars promises to quit the chase. ("I Do")

In the months that followed, Kate began a pattern of calling Mars on religious holidays. After she tried to visit her dying mother, the police were called to the hospital to arrest Kate, who was on the run. Kate left behind her plane, which was an item shared with her childhood sweetheart Tom Brennan, who was killed during Kate's escape from the hospital's parking lot. ("Born to Run")

After marrying Kevin Callis, Kate called Mars again to tell him she didn't want to run anymore. Sensing that Kate had fallen in love, Mars offered to stop chasing her if she could really settle down. But fearing Kevin, a police officer, would eventually discover her identity, Kate fled her husband and the chase continued. ("I Do")

Mars later told Kate that her plane was in a safety deposit box in New Mexico. ("Exodus, Part 1") Kate executed a bank robbery to recover it. ("Whatever the Case May Be")

Mars captures Kate, for the last time. ("Tabula Rasa")


Mars at last caught up with Kate in Australia, arresting her and arranging to bring her to the United States to stand trial. Mars was seated in seat 27G on Flight 815 next to Kate, whom he was escorting. He carried a Halliburton suitcase with four guns and ammo in it, and had a fifth gun in an ankle holster. During the turbulence that caused the crash, Mars was hit on the head by falling luggage, knocking him out and causing his head to bleed. While he was unconscious, Kate took his keys to remove her handcuffs, and then placed the oxygen mask on his face. ("Tabula Rasa")  ("Exodus, Part 1")

On the Island

Days 1-3 (Season 1)

Jack enlists Hurley to help with Mars' surgery. ("Pilot, Part 2")

He was severely injured in the crash by being impaled by a piece of metal. Sawyer assumed he was dead, and took his badge and pistol. Jack attempted to keep him alive as long as possible, hoping to get him to a hospital when they were rescued, as that was his only chance to survive. On the first night Jack tended him, while Kate worried; she told Jack she was sitting next to him on the plane. ("Pilot, Part 1")

The next day, Rose asked Jack to look at him. Later Hurley helped Jack tend to him. Jack asked Hurley to hold Mars down while he removed the piece of metal, but Hurley fainted. As Jack stitched up the wound, the pain caused Mars to regain consciousness, and he snarled, "Where is she?" ("Pilot, Part 2")

Mars speaks to Kate for the last time. ("Tabula Rasa")

When Mars regained consciousness, he told Jack that "She (Kate) is dangerous. Don't let her get to you. She is not to be trusted. She would do anything to get away." When Kate went into the tent to check on him, he attempted to strangle her. His suffering was obvious to the other survivors, some of whom questioned the use of medical supplies on an evidently terminal patient. Jack refused to let him die or to put him out of his misery. Apparently at Kate's request, Sawyer attempted to end his suffering by shooting him, but missed his heart and perforated his lung, putting him in more pain. Jack then euthanized him. ("Tabula Rasa")


The Marshal's grave as seen by Kate and Jack ("Whatever the Case May Be")

His body was later dug up by Kate and Jack to retrieve the keys to the Halliburton case. ("Whatever the Case May Be")

Two years later, during Kate's trial, Jack stated that Mars died in the crash, and that he never spoke to Jack. ("Eggtown")


  • Although Edward Mars' name had been known from for some time, his name was not mentioned on-screen until "I Do", when he answered a phone as "Agent Mars", and Kate called him "Edward". Until this he had been credited on the show as "The Marshal".
  • Mars has appeared in flashbacks in five episodes since his death on the Island and only two before.
  • Edward Mars is seen to have a wedding band.
  • Eddie Mars is a character in the book The Big Sleep, who runs a casino.
  • ABC frequently credits him as "the Marshall" in press releases. This is a misspelling of his occupation, which has only one "l".
  • On 5 April, 1950, the Marshall Mars was lost near Hawaii when an engine fire consumed the airplane after her crew had evacuated.
  • Edward Mars was the first recurring guest star to die, in his third episode.

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

This article is about the planet. For the Armada episode, see Mars (Armada episode).

Mars is the fourth of the nine twelve eight...

Mars is the fourth planet from the sun located within Earth's solar system.

Mars is almost always a trap, statistically.


Generation One

Cartoon continuity

Generation One animated series

The Earth Defense Command has a base operating on Mars.

The Headmasters anime

Having harnessed the plasma energy released when the Transformers' homeworld of Cybertron was destroyed, Decepticon Headmaster leader Scorponok sought to generate and collect more of the energy to fuel his ambitions. To accomplish this, Scorponok plotted the destruction of Mars, and ordered the Terrorcons to plant plasma energy bombs beneath the surface of the planet Mars at strategic points which would, when detonated, rip the planet apart.

The Decepticons' activities were discovered by Spike, Daniel, Wheelie and the Trainbots, who were on Mars conducting a geological survey at the time. The Autobot Headmasters were called in to deal with the threat, but during the battle that ensued, Fortress Maximus was de-powered by a plasma energy blast. Scorponok took the opportunity to activate his newly constructed Transtector and travel to Mars where he pummeled Maximus before ordering the planet's destruction. Two clusters of bombs placed at the Martian planetary poles were detonated simultaneously by Soundblaster, beginning a chain reaction that started to tear Mars apart. Scorponok and the Decepticons evacuated while the Autobots were consumed by the inferno, but Fortress Maximus was able to absorb some of the energy released in the early stages of the conflagration and made his escape as Mars exploded.

Incredibly, the destruction of Mars had a minimal impact on the various planetary orbits throughout the Sol system, and the fate of its moon was not divulged, but its absence did disrupt the gravimetric balance of space bridge travel, destabilizing it.

Note: An extra line is added into the RTM 1 dub version of "The Final Showdown on Earth (Part 2)" that has Fortress state that the Autobots plan to "rebuild Mars" somehow. While it is, of course, hard to credit any changes from the RTM 1 dub as being deliberate, this particular change happens to patch a continuity error from Victory very well, as noted below.

Victory anime

Ore acquired from Mars, coupled with ores from Earth and other planets, was used in the creation of Schaeffer Energy. Jean Minakaze happened to be visiting the Schaeffer Energy plant in America as a cargo ship carrying a payload of Martian ore returned from its space mission.

Note: When the origins of Schaeffer Energy are related, it is implied that Mars still exists. Although apparently just a plain ol' continuity error, it does line up with Fortress's RTM 1 dub promise (above) surprisingly well, making one wonder if it could have actually been done deliberately. Setting this oddity aside, though, it might be theorised that the ore was obtained from the remains of Mars floating in space.

Unicron Trilogy

Cartoon continuity


Jetfire and Starscream once travelled to Mars in seach of the Mini-Con panel containing Firebot. Upon hearing this, the kids asked the two Transformers to buy them something from the souvenir shop. Sadly, as Mars was uninhabited by either human or alien lifeforms, there were no shops to be found. Starscream did however find a mysterious glowing green rock and gave it to the children. They were so happy.

Joke's on them - its probably radioactive.


Ten years after the defeat of Unicron, the Cybertronian Alliance and the Earth Federation installed a facility on the surface of Mars to mine the potent naturally-occuring ore Energon. Unfortunately, this facility was decimated by the initial Terrorcon attack, leading Carlos to aptly remark "Holy frijoles".

Also Tidal Wave was stationed on Mars, by the autobots during the Cybertronian Alliance, to guard the Mini-Cons who were sent there.

A little while later, the survivors of the first attack, Autobot, Decepticon and Mini-Con, made a valiant last stand against a second Terrorcon attack, this time being personally led by Scorponok.


Thunderblast, Ransack, Crumplezone and Thundercracker left Earth on a rickety rocket, attempting to forge the New Decepticon Army. Their rocket made it as far as Mars before crashing and stranding them on the planet.


During the 2007 TF live-action film, there is a scene on the Martian surface in which an indistinct Transformer destroys the Beagle 2 Rover. This scene was also incorporated into early teaser trailers for the movie.
