I heard this mission has an extremely high-resolution camera, but don't MGS and Mars Express as well? I know it also has some kind of radar sounder to search for water beneath the surface, but doesn't Mars Express have something like that too? The only instrument I found that hasn't been flown before is one for measuring climate that I think was lost on the Mars Climate Orbiter.
