Starfield Cydonia

A dust-shrouded relic of humanity’s past, Cydonia is the capital city of Mars and home to “unique challenges”.

Last updated We’ve updated this page with the latest information.

Cydonia was one of the first colonies established by humanity as humans looked for a new place to call home. Due to the hostile, airless environment, Cydonia was built in a crater, and lies largely underground. Covered in dust and sand, Cydonia appears to be a poor settlement compared to New Atlantis, and could be considered another relic of humanity’s flight from the Earth.

Cydonia trivia:

Cydonia was first spotted briefly during the Starfield gameplay trailer of June 2022.

The Starfield city of Cydonia is named after the Cydonia region of Mars. The region in question is the site of the “Face on Mars” phenomenon, which numerous spectators at the time claimed to be evidence of a Martian civilization.

Tim has sunk at least a thousand hours into Bethesda games over the years, and is always looking for the next mod to extend that playtime further. So, if he’s not busy updating our Starfield weapons database, he’s eagerly anticipating Starfield mods and DLC, or planning his dream outpost.
