Here's one that is quite detailed:
http://www.spaceflight101.com/msl-edl-timeline.html

Note that event times are given in UTC and something called ERT (Earliest Earth Receive Time in UTC - this accounts for the time delay between Mars and Earth)

There are pdfs that give other time references at the top of the web page.
