The following table is a partial list of artificial objects on the surface of Mars. Most are defunct after having served their purpose, but the Spirit rover and the Opportunity rover are still operational. The Phoenix lander is the most recent man-made object to land safely on Mars. The list does not currently include smaller objects such as springs, fragments, parachutes, heatshields. The landers of the MER rovers, or other mission objects may be included in the future.
