2013 still given for the soft lander, Chang'e 3.
If they meet it, and unless GLXP gets there before that, it will be a 37 year gap between lunar soft landings.
We are sorry to announce that due to irreversible nature of the events depicted in this movie, there will not be a "Gravity 2"

Chang'e-3 rover (2013, 120kg, 20kg payload) has been finished.
Chang'e-4 rover (2015?) entered prototype phase.

Soft landing is not the final, associate the progresses of Chang'e, ShenZhou, TianGong station, Long March 5 rocket, WenChang launch center, it seems CNSA very expects manned landing before 2030.

Maybe we can watch the launch during Mid-Autumn or National Day holidays.
If not now, then when;
if not here, then where.
