The new images reveal Curiosity on the surface of Mars as its mission continues.

Taken by Nasa’s HiRise spacecraft, which also captured the astonishing images of the rover landing, they reveal exactly how far the rover has driven on the red planet.

Tyre tracks are clearly visible, as well as the areas where Curiosity landed.

Engineers plan to use the images to track Curiosity as it moves across the red planet.

Nasa has announced that Curiosity recently completed its longest drive yet, after travelling more than 100 feet on 4 September.

The rover drove southeast, with a ‘dogleg’ move to avoid some treacherous sand, clearly visible in the image above.

The drive was the longest single journey by Nasa, and brings its total distance travelled to 358 feet.

Nasa added that the rover is in ‘good health’.

Other new images also reveal the final resting places of the comlex kit that brought Curiosity ot the surface.

The high-tech craft hit the top of the Martian atmosphere at 13,000mph, and was then slowly lowered by a radical floating ‘sky crane’ before gently arriving in a massive crater.

Operators have now photographed the sky crane’s final landing site in colour, and also found the parachute and backplate from the landing, which was dubbed ‘seven minutes of terror’ due to its complexity.
