No animals have been landed on Mars yet. No humans have been on Mars either. As far as animals living on Mars, there is no current knowledge of that either, although speculation exists.

Transporting animals (or people) to Mars is still not practical. Currently it would take several months to get there, during which time cosmic rays would cause serious damage to the passengers, and such a mission would require huge amounts of food (which must somehow be preserved for probably at least 5 years to get there, land, and return to Earth), water and breathable air be brought. At present, such a mission is impractical because of how much fuel would be required to carry everything to Mars, land it, launch back into space from Mars' surface and return to Earth. It also costs a lot of money, in the billions and possibly trillions.

As of July 2014, no animal has been sent to Mars yet. In 2008 it was announced that Russia planned to send monkeys to Mars, but this hasn't happened yet.

Bruno Mars certainly seems to have developed a love of dogs: he got his first puppy, named Geronimo, in 2012.

There are no animals on Mars. It is void of any life.

Mars has constantly been visited by spacecrafts. The first spacecraft to visit Mars was the Mariner 4. After that Mars has been visited by numerous spacecrafts like: Mars Pathfinder, Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Odyssey, Mars Express and the Mars 2 which was the first spacecraft to land on Mars.

The first rovers sent to Mars were the Russian Rovers,Mars 2 and Mars 3. But, Mars 2 crash-landed on the planet and Mars 3 ceased transmissions 20 seconds after landing. Mariner 4 was the first succesfully landed probe.

The first mission to Mars was Mars 1 a Soviet flyby probe that flew past Mars and took some picutres. The first probe to orbit Mars was Mariner 9. The first probe to try to land on Mars was Mars 2 a Soviet lander probe. It crashed and was destroyed on impact. The first successful landing on Mars was Viking 1 which sent back many picuters of the area around the landing site. So far there have been no manned missions to Mars.

First ever satellite to land on the planet Mars was a Russian probe called Mars 2. Albeit it did not land but crashed. The first successful probe to land on Mars was Mars 3 sent by the Russians, however the probe was operational for 15 minutes after landing on Mars. The first American probe to land on Mars was the Viking 1 on the 20th of July 1976.
