Original Message Some people have been speculating that non-life processes could have formed past life on Mars (Note 1).

However, large molecules have been found on Mars:
"High molecular weight molecules. ‘Bands’ of masses grouped together and having mass-to-charge (m/z) 190 to 485, represent high molecular weight molecules detected by the SAM QMS. These data may indicate that large, complex molecules were present."

Those large martian molecules could not have been formed without life.
