Mars was obviously completely decimated in the past, the chances of a civilization developing millions of years ago is highly highly unlikely.
Single celled or slightly complex organism's on the other hand are a completely different story.

The jury is still 'out' on this for me. But if the op's contention is that a planetoid-sized geode crashed on mars I would have to insist that the theory be backed up with examples. There must be other similar impacts we can compare, or was there only one geode-style asteroid in our solar system?
Crystalline structures should shatter and pulverize under such tremendous force, unless these are metallic crystal structures. The data for either argument seems inconclusive. I wish we could trust NASA/DOD to simply reveal everything we learn, instead of treating the public like some kind of children who can't be trusted to know, lest we lose interest in the mundane, or panic at the possibilities.
As far as people 'lying' or 'dis-informing' or simply 'cashing in' on anomalies, I suppose that is as likely as anything else for the moment.
