More recent works by KSR often feature recurring elements from the Mars Trilogy, [[ThematicSeries but none are direct sequels]]. The novel ''[[TwentyThreeTwelve 2312]]'' picks up on many of the settings and tropes that were only briefly alluded to in the Mars Trilogy, with its two central characters natives of Mercury and Titan. According to WordOfGod, [[BroadStrokes the basics of Martian history are similar]], but the Mars of ''2312'' is far less terraformed than the Mars of the trilogy, and the economics of the solar system are rather different, too. ''Literature/{{Aurora}}'' is similar again, but lacks the longevity technologies and terraformed Mars of the Mars Trilogy.

** The city of Terminator, capital of Mercury in ''Blue Mars'' and a central location in ''2312'' is the ''ultimate'' Cool Train: the entire city moves around the planet, always keeping ahead of the devastating dawn.

* TheGreatPoliticsMessUp: A small mess-up: In the time the book was written, Switzerland wasn't a member of the Un yet, but during the time the novel is set in (the 2020s and onward) Switzerland already became a member state (on the 10 September 2002, to be exact).

* TheFogOfAges: In ''Blue Mars'' it becomes clear that this is a possible side-effect of the longevity treatment, as the extremely long-lived main characters begin to forget things they did when they were in their ''100's''. Eventually [[spoiler:a cure for this is found that not only reverses the effect but also reinforces all the previous memories the person has, including memories from their childhood they normally didn't remember anyway]].

More recent works by KSR appear to share the universe of the Mars Trilogy, but differ in various important ways that show that they are not part of the same continuity at all, and have major underlying differences. The as the novel ''2312'' picks up on many of the settings and tropes that were only briefly alluded to in the Mars Trilogy, with its two central characters natives of Mercury and Titan. It can be seen however that the Mars of ''2312'' is far less terraformed than the Mars of the trilogy, and the economics of the solar system are rather different, too. According to WordOfGod, ''2312'' is ''definitely'' not the same fictional universe, [[BroadStrokes but the basics of Martian history are similar]]. {{Aurora}} is similar again, but lacks the longevity technologies and terraformed Mars of the Mars Trilogy and may not even by in the same universe as ''2312''.

The ''Red Mars'' trilogy is a series of novels by sci-fi author Kim Stanley Robinson. It explores the settlement and subsequent {{terraform}}ing of Mars over the course of nearly two centuries. The series is known for its accurate science, complex characters, realistic portrayals of politics and economics, and for its ultimately optimistic tone, shading towards a utopia rather than a {{dystopia}}.
