Exomars is part of the ESA's Aurora Flagship sequence of exploratory missions. The mission will deploy a rover to the surface of Mars to carry out a number of scientific experiments around its landing site, along with an orbiter to carry out data relay between the rover and mission control on Earth.

The current specification calls for the rover to be solar-powered and to carry a 40 kg scientific payload with an emphasis on exobiology research.
