Soviet Mars 3 Lander or something else?

These photographs (PSP_006154_1345 and ESP_031036_1345) were taken by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) HiRISE Camera on 18 November 2007 and 10 March 2013 respectively.

NASA describes them as “Center of Soviet Mars 3 Landing Ellipse” and “Could This Be the Soviet Mars 3 Lander?”

Case #31: Soviet Mars 3 Lander or something else?:

“Together, this set of features and their layout on the ground provide a remarkable match to what is expected from the Mars 3 landing, but alternative explanations for the features cannot be ruled out. Further analysis of the data and future images to better understand the 3-dimensional shapes may help to confirm this interpretation.” – Alfred McEwen (11 April 2013) NASA

I downloaded the JP2’s to view these anomalies.

Could this be the Soviet Mars 3 Lander or something else?

At least NASA identifies these as unnatural anomalies.
