Top Ten Things That Would Be Needed for a Mars Colony

Wouldn't it be so badass to live on mars? These are stuff we need to achieve it. This list should SO be sent to NASA! Anyway, we can't have many people on it only researchers, ans tourists with space travel training.
The Top Ten
1 A Man-Made Water Source

"Man-made" yes, but I think it's more realistic to synthesize water by combining hydrogen and oxygen.

2 A Green House

Since Mars has no grass, we could use very large pots to grow plants in greenhouses. The only problem is figuring out how to get sunlight for the underground one. We can use bulbs, but they are not as effective.

There was a Mars farm simulation, and there's a good chance plants will be able to grow abundantly on Mars. The surplus of carbon dioxide would also aid in providing some oxygen.

3 Underground City

Since the weather on Mars is extreme, it would be best to have an underground city to live in, similar to above land, for when extreme weather occurs. However, I think the colony should be in northern Mars because NASA says the weather is better there.

4 A Research Area

There should be a building just for collecting information and researching Mars and all the celestial bodies we can find around it. In my opinion, a Mars colony should primarily serve space exploration purposes.

5 Weather Resistant Housing

As I said, we'd all realistically be under one base, whose conditions would be monitored by automation.

Mars doesn't have tornadoes but it does have strong winds and dust devils, which resemble tornadoes. If a house breaks down, they would be in trouble because Earth would have to ship them materials, which might take a long time.

6 Trade Route Leading to Earth

Something tells me hurdling through space in constant rotation through different orbits might make this kind of difficult.

This may seem like science fiction, but maybe in the future, when technology is more advanced, we can establish one. That would be good for delivering resources.

7 Space Suits

Mars is mostly carbon dioxide so people on Mars would need to wear tanks all the time, which would be challenging, but that's how it's going to be until we can figure out how to make Mars all oxygen. They also need a store for emergencies in case they need more.

Air! It's more important than anything else on this list except for food and water.

8 An Airport for Visitors

I think we should make an airport or a rocket port, with rocket ships for travel to other planets or for visits from other planets.

9 Internet
10 Exercise Equipment
The Contenders
11 Mining Equipment

Face it, if we want the base to be successful, we will eventually need to make materials on site: metals, glass, plastics, etc. Mining equipment will be essential, along with equipment such as furnaces, mini factories, and 3D printers, to process these materials into equipment and infrastructure.
