Yes, we will soon be viewing the surfaces of planet Mars in 3-D.
James Cameron is helping in the construction of the new Mars rover  by installing a high-resolution 3-D camera.

Although this plan has been rejected in 2007 due to budget,
Cameron lobbied the inclusion of a 3-D camera last January to NASA  administrator Charles Bolden. Cameron insisted that viewers will appreciate the Mars mission more when viewed in 3-D.

Bolden was convinced. Cameron is now the co-investigator of Malin
Space Science Systems, building  contractor of the rover.
