Schiaparelli lander crash site from HiRISE in color
The landing site as seen on November 1, 2016, about two weeks after the crash. Color and grayscale data have been combined to emphasize the shape of the impact crater, dark ejecta from the impact/explosion, and bright fragments of the lander. Image scale is 27.8 cm/pixel; the whole image is 234 meters square.

Here is a 300% enlarged view.
