Of course, I'm just speculating, but I don't see how a CURRENT civilization could be hidden on mars. My guess, though, is that there's just enough frozen water over there to support a few 'manned' bases (perhaps even automated factories that build/repair ships and huge genetic labs).
"The United States has three major bases in Australia. One
is in South Australia (Nurranger, near Woomera, T.N.), another in
New South Wales, and the third (and by far the largest) is
located within about 230 km (143 miles) of the geographical
center of the continent, not far to the west of Alice Springs
(Northern Territory), at the foothills of the southern slopes of
the MacDonnell Range. This base is completely underground, with
barely visible entrances to the surface.
"This 'Top Secret' base is entirely financed by the United
States Government, and is officially known as the Joint Defense
Space Research Facility.
I don't really have any comment on your "Mars manned-mission" scoop, other than, don't buy on any stock tips from this dude... by Valhall

As I mentioned to Cassini, most likely X Craft being launched from either Wyoming or Alaska due north, or out of Pine Gap Australia due south, on polar orbits.
