Confirmation of Chinese Rover Zhurong Landing on Mars By NASA Satellite
Here's the concrete solid proof that the Chinese Government is present on the Mars surface.

Soil disturbance created by the landing rockets is seen around the rover platform. Zhurong itself has trundled off the platform for a short distance.
The Zhurong rover drove down the ramp of the lander on to the surface of MARS - BBC.
It now raises the question of how will the US Government move forward and does it mean that the US (first come, first served) will have to divide up the surface of the Red planet and share it? Or will the US Government do the right thing and cooperate with China for the greater good on behalf of humanity for the sake of science and each other.
To lead by example because...
There's a scramble to get to Mars, there's a ton of historical significance in being the first country to do anything in space! When anyone comes to the realisation that they can do anything (if not do better) than what's on offer, they tend to go it alone and sometimes that's a good thing because it creates rivalry and standards are high.

"Space first's" just like the world first's are now up for grabs. But I'm sure it isn't a world record that's beckoning to the Chinese or the US for that matter! It's something much more important, it's creating a new destination, laying the foundations for interplanetary travel. The human race is going to have a colony on most planet's within the galaxy.
Once we have total control over speed and materials including the engineering processes needed to propel human vehicles to the four corners of the universe unscathed, once we master that and the fabric of space itself,
Something is calling the Government's of the world right now, to come to the Red planet?
I really hope that they (China and the US) both work together for the greater good. Please, just think of the greatness that could come from these two vast agency resources been put together "pooled together, if you like" for the first time ever, in the history of mankind?
Two world superpowers coming together to get Mars figured out, bagged, tagged and a road map to success being put in to action over the next "generation". That would be sic.
What we could achieve would be epic, setting aside their differences to come together to bring mankind one step or two steps closer to becoming an off world species that has a second home in the form of a colony on Mars - that makes me happy.
