The footage - a compilation of 16 separate scenic images - was taken by the space agency's Curiosity Rover.
The photos were taken on October 25, 2017, by Curiosity's Mast Camera.
The video below takes you on a guided tour of the area, with NASA scientists pointing out landmarks. NASA informed that, from this point, the Curiosity could scan the wide expanse of the interior rim of the Gale Crater. In the coming week, Curiosity will begin to climb this slope.
The crater's north rim, which rises about 2 km could be seen in the panorama and also the picture covers most of the 18 km journey that Curiosity has managed to cover so far. Mission team members have stitched these images into a panorama that shows some of the key regions Curiosity has explored since touching down on the Red Planet in August 2012.
Curiosity's impressive panorama spans more than 30 miles, and shows the route that the rover has taken since 2012. The selfie was assembled from dozens of images captured by the rover's Mars Hand Lens Imager, or MAHLI, camera, on the end of the spacecraft's robot arm.
Mastcam captured the images just before Mars' northern hemisphere winter solstice while the one-ton rover was paused at Vera Rubin Ridge, 1,073 feet (327 meters) above its landing site, taking advantage of seasonal clear skies.
Notable sites that are visible include several areas that may have harbored water in the planet's ancient past. A region named Yellowknife May was found to be having the potential to support life as chemicals needed by microbial life were discovered in that region.
Curiosity Project Scientist Ashwin Vasavada of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, said: "Even though Curiosity has been steadily climbing for five years, this is the first time we could look back and see the whole mission laid out below us". That is called the "Clay Unit" because observations from orbit detected clay minerals there.
Curiosity is now perched on a ridge named after USA astronomer Vera Rubin. The curiosity team received the images from NASA's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) orbiter. This is Mount Sharp pulling a look-at-me photobomb, which is pretty much the Mars equivalent of making bunny ears behind someone's head.
MAVEN is capable of returning high volumes of data, and mission scientists plan to use it again for this objective during the times its closest approach to Mars puts it near Curiosity.
