This White Paper discusses the key open science questions regarding the effects of the solar wind interaction at Mars. Understanding the Martian plasma system behavior as a whole (from the surface to space) should be a priority for space research as it holds significant clues to the evolution of Mars’ climate and past/present habitability. Moreover, it plays a critical role for both unmanned and manned exploration.
