The UAE mission is also 2020. Launch windows to Mars are every 2 years. 2021 is the arrival date.

All of the missions listed would be arriving in early 2021 due to the travel time after launch in mid 2020.

China's Tianwen-1 mission and Mars 2020 mission (which carried the Perseverance rover and Ingenuity helicopter) launched in 2020, while the UAE's Hope space probe was launched on July 19, 2020, and reached areocentric orbit on February 9, 2021.

I found these additional upcoming missions to Mars:
* Mangalyaan-2 - to be launched in 2024
* Martian Moons eXploration (MMX) - to be launched in 2024
* EscaPADE - to be launched in 2024
* Tera-hertz Explorer (TEREX) - planned for mid 2020s
* Kazachok - 2024
* ExoMars - 2028

Maybe a SpaceX Mars precursor flyby mission near the end of the 2024 launch window. Presuming there is no major hiccups with Starship development.

We'll come back and ask you about that at the end of 2024.

2034 is probably a more realistic date than 2024.

When SpaceX bring the HLS lander and supporting tankers into service means that they could do a Mars flyby as well. So your 2034 date is too pessimistic IMO. Since I expected NASA will have people on the Lunar surface before 2030.

And your initial date was far, far too optimistic IMHO.

Is there any evidence that Kazachok will continue as a stand alone mission?

Additional missions:

* ESA/NASA sample return lander and Earth return missions ~2028
* Chinese sample return mission ~2028

The Kazachok lander could launch as a stand alone Mars mission provided that there is a new Russian Mars rover under development because EU sanctions on Russia have left the Rosalind Franklin rover without a launch platform.

Even without a rover and with European instruments removed it still provides a useful payload.

•   Meteorological package (MTK)
•   A magnetometer (MAIGRET)
•   A set of four cameras (TSPP)
•   An IR Fourier spectrometer (FAST)
•   Active Detection of Radiation of Nuclei-ExoMars (ADRON-EM)
•   Multi-channel Diode-Laser Spectrometer (M-DLS)
•   Radio thermometer (RAT-M) for soil temperatures
•   Dust particle size, impact, and atmospheric charging instrument suite (PK)
•   A seismometer (SEM)
•   Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (MGAK)

China is planning to launch a second Mars mission, the Tianwen-3, in 2028:
