Players who want to terrafrom/control Mars Players looking for Easter eggs
Like Earth, the player can find Mars in the Sol system. It is a rocky planet. Unlike the real Mars, which is colder than in Spore and with large valleys and mountains, Mars is plain, and only needs an Atmosphere Generator to reach T1. Mars will typically have Yellow Spice but sometimes purple or green Spice.
If the player looks carefully at Mars there are three tall mountains including Olympus Mons. It is the largest volcano in the solar system at three times the height of Mount Everest, and many times larger. Nearby lies a large canyon - Valles Marineris. The Tharsis Bulge is also present, as well as the northern polar cap. These landforms are hard to spot. Also, Mars may vary from game to game, so you may not have these landmarks.
