Moon Express are considering lunar orbital mission first, depends on Electron performance and customer payloads.

There are some pluses to orbital mission even if it isn't as exciting. Will prove MX E1 endurance, which is critical for Mars moons or Asteriod missions. Mars moons are definitely in MX 2 capabilities but will need LauncherOne. At estimated $20m for lander and launch, its cheap ride to Phobos or Deimos for NASA.
