We Should Search for Extant Life on Mars in this Decade

We advocate the search for extant Martian life should be accomplished in a focused mission or program in the next decade or be included among New Frontiers candidate missions. Four examples of habitable environments on modern Mars that merit a search for extant life are described along with potential approaches for their exploration.
