Those darker areas inside the craters are, as far as I have seen, and considering that I do not remember the exact ID of that photo and that you did not provided it either, are areas with a blueish dust and the famous "blueberries".
The dark spots on the other photos are not only in a completely different place (these are near the poles), they are not the same thing, as far as we can see on the photos provided either by NASA or by ESA.
Oh, OK, I did not understood that that was the name of the image, I was expecting an official name.

Not only did I mention that at the end of the post, but I did give the name of the image file I cropped that can be found at the Mars Express page ( the "post card" image):
They are obviously open to interpretation, everything else is, why shouldn't these things be?
IMO, I see both - but if these images aren't open to interperetation, then what's the point?

Personally, I think their hiding things. What's the big deal if they come out and tell us there's life now or was life on Mars? The truths the truth. Nothing wrong with a big wake up call to the people of Earth. Besides, I'd like to see what my taxes are paying for instead of having a handful of select people get these thrill of discovery moments.
As stated before, they could have tried to put the rover in an area more interesting like the face or the pyramids, or would something like that be too hard to hide? As for what the atmosphere is, again, we only know what they tell us. The whole "Panic the public" argument about alien life is laughable.
Maybe the government is the one who's afraid. Afraid if we find out the truth it'll wreck the carefully structured society (With them at the top.) they worked so long and hard on. Better to keep us in the dark about such things. (For our own good)
