The way things are going, I'd say they will happen relatively soon. Days or less.
I'm just amazed at how well this mission is proceeding.
I thought I heard them discussing testing the arm as soon as the base tests were done during one of the NASA TV lead-up briefings.

We will have to wait till the hi-res color photos of that area come out. If they are released and the image is cleaned up and the anomaly removed, there will be questions NASA must answer. but until then we can only speculate.
Hopefully another B/W image of that area is released soon so we can compare them and determine if it is a camera artifact.

You act as if this is the only mission that we have to go by. Go back and review other threads and other pictures and you will find that there have been complaints and questions about NASA's portrayal of the colors of mars and its sky.
Research a bit before you start questioning why some people are skeptical about the quality and the interpretation of the colors that we are shown.
