A lot of strange things have been spotted on Mars over the years - but most are not quite what they seem.
Probably the most famous anomaly on Mars was the infamous "Face on Mars" photographed during the Viking missions. Images of a region known as Cydonia revealed a mysterious structure that looked like a face complete with eyes and a mouth. All was not quite what it seemed however - a more recent mission revisited the area and took a picture from a different angle revealing the face as little more than a natural formation and a trick of the light.
