The journey that the ExoMars 2016 spacecraft took from Earth to Mars. 'Distance to Mars' is the straight-line distance between the spacecraft and Mars, and not the actual distance that the spacecraft travels.

The mission was launched on 14 March 2016. The Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) and the Schiaparelli entry, descent and landing demonstrator module separated on 16 October 2016. Schiaparelli entered the martian atmosphere three days later, on 19 October, while TGO entered orbit around Mars.
