List of Martian meteorites
Of the over 53,000 meteorites that have been found on Earth just 99 had been identified as Martian as of 30 July 2011[update]. On 17 October 2013, NASA reported, based on analysis of argon in the Martian atmosphere by the Mars Curiosity rover, that certain meteorites found on Earth thought to be from Mars, were actually from Mars. Note that the list does not include meteorites found on Mars by the various rovers.
Where multiple meteorites are listed they are believed to be pieces of the same original body. The mass shown is the total recovered.
