Following answer(s) to Which object has been to space the most times? answer, and related to Objects that have been on the Moon multiple times one.

Question: Are there any object(s) that travelled to more than one planet(s) or other natural bodies besides the Moon?

update: Per OP's comment:

I guess orbits can count.

the visits can include orbits around these bodies and don't necessarily require landing on each body.

    $\begingroup$ Has anything actually been brought back from another planet at all? Other bodies, sure, but I don't recall anything taking a spin round a planet and coming back. Maybe you should expand your question to cover any other natural bodies, then there's at least a small chance. $\endgroup$ Dec 5, 2019 at 15:02

    $\begingroup$ I'm guessing the record is 1, for asteroid/comet sample return missions. $\endgroup$ Dec 5, 2019 at 21:04
  • $\begingroup$ Do "been on" and "taken to" mean taken to the surface of planets (not possible for planets that lack any kind of solid or liquid surface)? Would orbit count? $\endgroup$ Dec 6, 2019 at 16:51
