The InSight mission landed on Mars in November 2018 and with it, it brought a magnetometer to the surface for the first time. I am going to talk about InSight findings on the magnetic field environment of Mars addressing the crustal and time-varying external magnetic fields driven by the Sun. I will put observations in context with what we have previously learned from satellite observations. Combined observations from the surface and orbit might open up avenues allowing to explore the subsurface structure through electrical conductivity on Mars.
