    Those who believe that some life form lives on Mars, and that that life form can speak, would, I believe, say that they speak Martian.

    That appears to be the accepted word for both the "people" (Martians) and the language (Martian).

    Of course, since there is no evidence that there is life on Mars, we don't really need a word for the language.

    Please remember to capitalise the first letter of each sentence, and also of proper nouns (Japanese, Chinese, China etc). You do not need to put a space before a question mark.

    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
