Curious. The tracks do indeed end at the edge of the image suggesting an image artifact. However they also have identical shadows and highlights as the craters, note the direction of the sun and shadows. In addition the image without the tracks is clearly taken with different lighting conditions and so the "missing" tracks could be as a result of that.
If they are tracks then each one is about a kilometre wide! if they are 5km apart.
This requires further images of the same location in order to determine whether it is an artifact or a "track".

I could be wrong but I don't think it looks anything like an image artifact.. it ends where the images are combined but all that means is that the images were taken at different times .. one before the tracks were laid, one after..
It could very well be one of the mars rovers... that would be a very plausible explanation, if the over went one way and then returned along a parallel path it would cause this...

So what causes this to happen in some places but not in most? Different camera(ie. different satellite)?
Jeez SpongeBeard you sound so sure of yourself ...have you been to Mars??

I don't mean to sound like a dick, but there is NO life on Mars.
NO LIFE WHATSOEVER.
No Humans are on mars, no Aliens are on Mars.
It is the dead planet. These are not tracks from ancient civilizations, these are not tracks from modern civilizations.
It's as simple as that. There is no conspiracy to be had here, Mars is just dead.edit on 7/6/11 by SpongeBeard because: Needed to crrect!!!
