If you are referring to the black scratch looking thing in the sky, I'm pretty certain it's just an image processing error.
We see these all the time on the SOHO cameras, and for whatever reason regardless how well documented there errors are, they always seem to find their way to a post here with claims of aliens, space ships, killer mystery planets or something else.
This, of course, isn't SOHO, but, due the extremely weak nature of Mars's magnetic field, the bombardment of solar radiation on the surface is bound to glitch some photos every now and again.
This isn't to say that if someone really wants to believe the black mark is an alien spacecraft that they can't go on continuing with that belief.
Probability, however, is with the black mark attribution going to image processing error, or a few pixels corrupted during transmission back to Earth over the hundreds of millions of miles the data needs to be sent.

Not sure if anyone caught this as I did or whether it's of any importance but I caught a dot right below this anomaly, and it appears to be in a perfect straight parallel line below it.
Now, this could just be consistent with a glitch in the photo or..............perhaps, just maybe, it's some sort of beam that was discharged from this craft.
S&F for an interesting find

The human mind... tricky thing mate. helps us see what we want it to see...
the image is very poor... and after a bit of glare removal and my fav gradient added the trail and the object do pop out a little bit more but still... I'm personally going to agree that this is some sort of defect.

It doesn't look that odd to me, it has a tail like you would see on a jet. Not really sure what it is though.
The Rod UFO's look very similar to the rockets used to propel Scram Jets. Just look up the rockets used for that, they basically look like a rocket with wings. it may be a photo of one that has burned all it's fuel, hence no flames, and is actually in the beginning stages of falling. Not saying that's what it is, but it could be.

It kind of looks like a missile taking off with a smoke trail. I am not a good judge though because I rarely look at this type of stuff.
