This picture taken by Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) camera is very intriguing. It certainly resembles what could be described as the ‘head of an alien’. One can believe whatever they want about some of the anomalies discovered on this nearby planet, I choose to believe that there are some benevolent ET’s with an outrageously good sense of humour. 
Here is  how NASA describes this perplexing image.
The two odd depressions at the north end of the crater (the “eyes”) may have formed by wind or water erosion. This region has been modified by both processes, with water action occurring in the distant past via floods that poured across western Chryse Planitia from Maja Valles, and wind action common occurrence in more recent history. This crater is located near 22.5°N, 47.9°W. The size of the “alien head” is about 164 yards long. Sunlight illuminates the scene from the left/lower left.
