Default It is getting crowded on Mars

NASA has a rover, a helicopter and a few satellites.
UAE has the Al-Amal research satellite.
China has a satellite and a lander with a rover soon to be deployed.
The great galactic ghoul seams to be gone.

Don't go counting your astro-chickens before they're hatched, grown, slaughtered and sizzling on the grill.

Let's first wait to see that rover kicking up some dust, and the lander surviving its first Martian cold snap.

Mars has many, many tricks up its sleeves when it comes to compromising missions.

Admittedly I am encouraged by the recent lack of failures. But there is still a long way to go before getting data back from Mars becomes routine.

Regards
Frank

I agree. The Great Galactic Ghoul is gone, it isn't dead. :-)
