The subsurface of Mars is likely the longest-lived habitable environment accessible to exploration within the coming decade that could host ancient biosignatures of past life or even extant microbial life [1]. Here we consider 3 aspects of subsurface exploration on Mars and address the driving science questions: 1) the crustal environment and spatial architecture of Mars; 2) the nature of subsurface volatiles and transport pathways; and 3) implications for habitability of the Martian subsurface. The technological aspects of subsurface access are addressed in a companion abstract [2].
