Judging by what we are supposed to know about life, microbial would be more likely. As for "much more advanced form" goes, it depends on what you consider much more advanced. Insects are much more advanced than microbial life forms.

If there is life on Mars what form would it take?
Could it be microbial or a much more advanced form?
Once more, it depends on the definition of intelligence. Many animals (on Earth) show signs of intelligence.
If it is a more advanced, could the life-forms have intelligence?
It looks like a common sedimentary rock, like limestone.
Is the main object in the foreground just an unusually shaped rock or is it artificial?
The other objects are too far away (or too small) to see anything useful.
Do you have any opinions about the objects showing in the view?
How do you know that the object is not a rock? What characteristics do you see that makes you think that?

ArMaP, There are other images of this object that is showing in the foreground. The object is not a rock. I will check the catologue for them.
Those objects are too small to get a good look at them, but I will look for other photos from that area.
I would also ask that you closely examine the objects on the hill in the background, especially the objects I have arrowed. These objects have shapes that resemble structures that have been found in other images from Mars.
I read the above several times but I couldn't understand what you mean.

I note that there is quiet a bit of light distortion in the pic which matches up with pre-determined shapes. Not sure if they can be clearly mapped though.
(name witheld) this a misquote (or I messed up). Here is what I think:
1. We have direct evidence of fluvial features on Mars.
2. These strongly imply the stable flow of liquid water on the surface for extended periods of time early in Mars' history.
3. It seems to us that for liquid water to flow the pressure must have been higher. maybe 100x the present.
4. We also surmise that the temperature might have been higher too. Maybe as warm as -10C average. (today is -60C).
5. Together these suggest that life may have been possible.
6. When we look at the history of life on Earth we see evidence for life very early in the fossil record. So even a short window of habitability on Mars may have been enough for life to get started. Hope this clarifies things -Chris

We allready found life on mars. Appearently not many people noticed...
On August 7, 1996, an historic press conference was held at NASA Headquarters in Washington DC. News that scientists had found evidence of life in a Mars meterorite had leaked out, and NASA had to make an announcement. A few minutes before, President Clinton made these remarks at the White House before heading out on a trip to California:
"This is the product of years of exploration and months of intensive study by some of the world's most distinguished scientists. Like all discoveries, this one will and should continue to be reviewed, examined and scrutinized. It must be confirmed by other scientists... I am determined that the American space program will put its full intellectual power and technological prowess behind the search for further evidence of life on Mars."
