From Mars to Sirius is the third studio album by the French progressive death metal band Gojira. A video directed by Alan Duplantier was filmed for the song "To Sirius". The album cover image bears a strong resemblance to the Sea Shepherd logo, an organization of which the band are known supporters.

It's a concept album that relates the resurrection of a dead planet through an interplanetary quest.[5]

In late September 2012, Listenable Records re-released the album in double vinyl format. The pressing is a strictly limited edition of 250 copies, available in two colors: beige and transparent.

In November 2015, Listenable Records announced that they would again re-issue three of Gojira's albums on vinyl, including From Mars to Sirius, with a limited run of 500 copies each.
