I thought it was Canada. ATS link: Are the Mars Rovers actually in Canada?
And yes, that does look like plastic or a foil bag (for storing food stuffs)
This image from the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) camera on NASA's Mars rover Curiosity shows a small bright object on the ground beside the rover at the "Rocknest" site. The object is just below the center of this image. It is about half an inch (1.3 centimeters) long. The rover team has assessed this object as debris from the spacecraft, possibly from the events of landing on Mars.

You guys have to pay for those crappy plastic bags!! Outrageous.
That pic looks like the remains of a piece of melted plastic that might have fallen off one of the dozens of craft who've been to Mars. There's supposedly nothing there to see, but everyone can't wait to send probes to see nothing. I don't get it.
