Mars is home to several volcanoes. It is hard for scientists to keep track of the amount of volcanoes on the planet so Mars is broken down into volcanic provinces.

Why are Mars' volcanoes so tall?

There are two reasons for this. First, Mars has weaker gravity than Earth does, allowing higher mountains. Second, Mars does not have plate tectonics. The volcanoes on Mars likely form over hot spots, as do some of the volcanoes on Earth. Volcanoes at Earth's hot spots get carried away by moving tectonic plates, which limits their growth. The volcanoes on Mars stay in place and so can grow for much longer.
