Assuming the Dragon V2 will be the lander for SpaceX Mars mission launching in 2018, will it be the largest lander (either by weight or by size) that humans have put on Mars to date?
Wikipedia has the Dragon V2 listed as 8.1m tall (~5.1m tall excluding the trunk) with a diameter of 3.7m. It also has a dry mass of 6,400 kg.
Curiosity, the largest rover I'm aware of is 2.9m x 2.7m x 2.2m, so it's much shorter than the Dragon V2, and about a third less wide. It has a listed dry mass of 900kg so it's much lighter.
Has anything larger been put on the surface of Mars, or will the Dragon V2 be the largest lander to date?
