Well...there was a Mars probe name "Mangalyaan" (Mangal --> Mars; Yaan --> vehicle) which was launched by ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) from India in November 5 last year is schedule to reach Martian atmosphere by 24th September after a ~300 day long journey. Apart from the other technological objectives, the scientific objective as mentioned on the ISRO site is: "Exploration of Mars surface features, morphology, mineralogy and Martian atmosphere..."

Both the probes might have each other's company. :)
