The cost of the project is staggering and the entire Mars 2020 project has come in at USD 2.4 billion (1.99 billion Euros). They expect that the mission will last a further one Martian year which is equivalent to 687 Earth days and cost a further USD 300 million (249 million euros).

NASA have high hopes for the Perseverance mission and they aim to study the habitability of Mars by looking at the environment and seeing if in the past it was capable of supporting microbial life. The rover will be collecting soil samples and testing the Martian atmosphere too.
