Nice piece by Scott Manley on Opportunity's last days/weeks/months, though the title could have been less sensational: "The Truth Behind Opportunity's Last Message and It's Final Days On Mars"

Opportunity's traverse: an engineering story. Work still in progress, not sure if I managed to track down all the major events and instrument failures yet. Most of them should be there, though.

Here's a video made from colorized images captured by @NASA's Opportunity rover while it was backing away from the rim of the 800m-wide Victoria Crater on Mars from August 26-28, 2008. The sound was actually captured by the Perseverance rover in Jezero Crater on March 7, 2021.
