On May 8th, 2001, a press conference was held in New York City to announce the discovery of the possibility that an ancient civilization once existed on planet Mars.
The press conference featured Tom Van Flandern, a former Chief Astronomer for the United States Naval Observatory, Brian O'Leary, a former Apollo scientist-astronaut trained for America's first manned mission to Mars, and Michael C. Luckman, director of the New York Center for UFO Research.
They describe a new human-like face, strange tunnels, pyramids and signs of current vegetation on Mars from among the 65,000 released NASA/JPL photographs taken by the Mars Global Surveyor.

Hmm,interesting video but:
I found the female face a little too good to be true,I mean how would a sculpture that size stand up to say 3 million years of exposure and still retain all that detail?
I think that the female face is either a manipulated image,or that its a case of us humans seeing a "face",because we are very good at that.
However,the original face and pyramids have always held my interest and the information about the face being on the old martian equator adds to my curiosity.
How do they know that this was the exact line of the previous equator?Is that an established fact?
Heres a little idea of mine to illustrate what may have happened if the face/pyramids are built,not natrural:
5 million years ago...
The martian humans highly advanced,realise that a cataclysmic event is about to occur,wiping them off the planet(possibly an asteroid shower,or the mega eruption of Olympus mons).
They have been observing a nearby planet which is similar but a lot smaller than there own,and they have been using vast resources and manpower to build ships capable of the journey.
At the same time they mobilize a gigantic army of builders who seek to leave signs,signs that they know will one day be visible from this smaller planet.
The rulers of Mars spend ages deciding what these signs should be,and finally decide upon a human face,as they realise that the planet they are headed to will soon be populated by their future generations,and will recognize the face as one of their own species.They decide to build it along the line of the equator,as an extra clue to its origin.
The building of the face was to be complimented with a series of super structures,the pyramids,in close proximity to the face.These pyramids were to hold masses of martian knowledge,technology and history so that one day the children of mars could find out about the sacrifices of our ancestors,and eventually reclaim the lost knowledge and history of our Martian brothers and sisters.
Anyway,they got the project finished just in time,and their fleet of ships containing approx 1% of the population (drawn from a martian hat at random,although a very large amount of the elite and ruling class mysteriously managed to get on the list)left the planet as it was enveloped by the noxious gasses associated with a mega eruption of olympus mons.Many centuries later,a gargantuan meteor storm battered one side of the planet,initiating a pole shift,changing the location of the equator.
By this time on Earth,those few Martians who survived the journey had been busy...very busy.
Treated like Gods by the local primitive ape like creatures,the Martians altered our DNA,and put us to work building Pyramids,Temples,Observatories.They taught us about the stars,and the planets in the hope that one day,when we have learned enough we may be able to follow in the footsteps of those Martians.
Today that day is near...
Or on the other hand of course,it could just be a pile of rocks..
