Mars Polar Lander carried a complementary suite of instruments to study conditions near the South Pole, including soil composition, water content in the soil and atmosphere, and weather conditions. A camera similar to the one on Mars Pathfinder (which landed on July 4, 1997) was to return images of the site. A microphone was to return sounds from the Lander and the Martian wind.
