1 million human colony city on Mars by Max Rymsha

On 2017 HP announced the "Mars Home Planet" rendering challenge inviting participants "to imagine, create and virtually experience a sophisticated civilization on Mars. A new home for one million humans." Swedish architect and CG artist Max Rymsha was one of the winners of the challenge creating his concept "Between The Red Mountains" for a sustainable city on Mars for 1 million humans. His inspiring vision includes several large-scale biodomes, SpaceX's Starships (in their 2016 design) for Earth-Mars transportation, hyperloop lines for intercity transportation, electric rovers and quadcopters for local transportation, laboratories of NASA, etc.; most of the city (not shown in the illustration) is underground for better radiation and asteroid protection.

Mars colony apartment block

British The Sun has published an article what the human residences on Mars could look like by 2050 with architects and scientists prototyping several possible types of homes for would-be Martian colonists. All the designs are meant "to protect interplanetary homeowners from hazardous cosmic rays, space radiation and Mars' severe dust storms, as well as insulate them from the cold."

Here are images for the 2nd design - apartment block covered with Martian regolith.

Concept art from "Dome City" - cancelled VR adventure game set on Mars

"Dome City" was a space adventure video game project with multiplayer (rarely seen in adventure games) and virtual reality support. It was developed by a small indie game developer "Overon Station", relaying on a (unsuccessful) crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, and never left past the pre-Alpha stage. In the game three young characters would be stranded fighting for survival in a domed city on Mars abandoned for 100 years. Sad the game didn't saw its release; the concept was interesting.

Here are some concept art images and a teaser for the game project:
