but Brandenberg believes that the planet may have been killed by another civilisation or even a rogue artificial intelligence.

One half of Mars looks (relatively) as if had been hit with buckshot. That would suggest a catastrophic meteor shower/strike, or perhaps a large object struck a moon that Mars once had.
To suggest nukes is a shot in the dark. There is virtually no evidence of that, let alone of intelligent life.
We may as well surmise that Ray Bradbury wrote from experience lol

I'm not sure why so many people think intelligent humanoid life would evolve on Mars faster than Earth. I'm pretty sure it has been determined that Mars had an atmosphere for only the first 500 million years. I don't think any native life would evolve to intelligent beings in that relatively short amount of time.

A respected physicist and author, John Brandenberg, has claimed that intelligent life once flourished on Mars – but was annihilated by a nuclear attack so intense it left the planet cold and lifeless.
The author has urged that a human mission to the planet be mounted immediately – in case we are in danger from the attackers who ‘killed’ Mars.
Brandenberg said that many of the nuclear isotopes in Mars’s atmosphere ‘resemble those from hydrogen bombs on Earth’ and hypotheses in a new book, ‘Death on Mars’, that a humanoid race once lived there but was wiped out.
This seems a bit far fetched. I would like to see Mr. Brandenbergs data.
It is far-fetched. Brandenburg doesn't actually make that claim. link

there was something on spirit science on this. supposedly the martians were very left-brain, ergo very technologically advanced but also very masculine in their personality. they escaped nuclear annihiliation via synthetic merkabah (an electromagnetic field that functions somewhat like the TARDIS) and landed in lemuria (general oceanic region of hawaii) around 5500 or so. allegedly.

Mars being smaller than Earth, it's atmosphere can be disrupted and blown out to space more easily. Apparently, from all that I've seen and read, Mars did once have an atmosphere conducive to life as we know it on Earth. The usual theory is that the planet that formed the asteroid belt threw debris out towards Mars that blew off the atmosphere, but there could be other reasons.
