I wasn't in the rocket part, but you can use a rail gun-like setup in a loop to accelerate small packages to bombard the surface of Mars with supplies beforehand. Once there, use liberal amounts of RTGs using plutonium and the in-development thermophotovoltaic cells. Each of these should produce a lot of heat, or about 1000+ watts every hour. Food should rely on fatty foods and strategic application of Mars soil to grow high-density foods. Water can be obtained via ice sheets + RTG heat.

Hey thanks man! Gonna look up aliexspress.com for used railguns first, and move on from that.

Nah, you need parts, not a pre-made one. Needs to be massive (a few miles)
