Interesting video on Masten landers - Masten are hooking up with NASA for possible lunar landings. Not clear yet what rocket will be used to get it to lunar orbit but Falcon 9H could do it.

I think something like these landers could be built on Mars at an early stage, either as rocket hoppers, for exploration or as vehicles to LMO.
