The Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover will search for signs of ancient microbial life, which will advance NASA's quest to explore the past habitability of Mars. The rover has a drill to collect core samples of Martian rock and soil, then store them in sealed tubes for pickup by a future mission that would ferry them back to Earth for detailed analysis. Perseverance will also test technologies to help pave the way for future human exploration of Mars.

It also has equipment to create O2 from martian CO2.

I couldn't do that for a living. First I'm not smart enough but I couldn't take the pressure. You screw one thing up and it's all over. Not me man.
