Factual errors 

Water and objects are seen falling at the same rate as on Earth but the gravity on Mars is only 38% the gravity on Earth.
The news articles and obituaries shown on screen are dated "Thursday 22 November 2059". November 22nd will actually be a Saturday in 2059.
Liquid water is seen pouring from the two infected crew and pooling on the roof. Mars is too cold and the atmosphere is too thin to support liquid water for more than a few seconds.
Burning wreckage is on the ground next to the Doctor. Mars has a thin atmosphere with less than 0.2% oxygen and cannot support a flame.
Mars is shown in glowing sunlight and a red-orange sky. In reality Mars has a "butterscotch" (yellow-brown) sky during the day and a pink sky at sunset and sunrise due to high levels of dust in the atmosphere.
