If there is no indiginous life on the planet then the organisms we seed should flourish and take over very fast because of the lack of competition, provided they can survive in those conditions. It would be interesting in itself to see how fast the life could spread across the planet. Once we have the first bacteria and simple organisms there... we can send more complex ones that require other life there for sustainance, viruses and fungi that eat the original microbes.
TBH i would settle for a good scientific experiment in a lab to see whether this would be possible.
