"yeah we took this picture with false color". to me it don't mean anything they can say what ever they want, this picture might be the original and the rest of the other pictures which we have been given by nasa saying is true color are the fake ones. why would they put the real one up for us to see? i dont know, it can be many reasons.

As many have been pointing out, this photo is NOT TRUE COLOR. The caption points this out very clearly. It says the image is in false color to bring out subtle differences in color.
Here are two pictures of the color calibration "sundial". The top one is taken in approximate-true color on Earth, and the bottom one is the one from the photo. One can easily see that the colors have been manipulated, so the "blue pond" and blue sky are not actually those colors.
