What is a MARS file?
File created by Adobe Acrobat, a program used to create and edit PDFs; stores an XML-friendly representation of a .PDF document; used for storing PDF documents in a more open and accessible format.
MARS documents can be generated using the Mars Project PDFXML plug-in for Adobe Acrobat, which was formerly available from the Adobe Labs website. However, the Mars Project has been discontinued and the plug-in is no longer available.
NOTE: The MARS file format developed by the Adobe Labs Mars Project is referred to as PDFXML. The .PDFXML file extension can be used interchangeably with the MARS extension.
