Mars Trojans basically are a Team of Trojan Objects that share an orbit with Mars around The Sun. The Mars Trojans can be seen 60 degrees on front of and behind Mars's two Lagrangian Points. As explain in Jupiter Trojans, Trojans, Trojan Asteroids or Trojans, are a Giant Team of Asteroids that share the same orbit around The Sun and the relative planet's orbit. The Origins of The Mars Trojans are cloudy but speculation leads to them coming from Primordial Astronomical Objects that were leftover in the formation of Mars. Another Theory on The Origin of The Mars Trojans are Asteroids falling into orbits within The Lagrangian Points eons ago.
