The term Martian refers to anyone or anything originating on the planet Mars.

In the early 20th century, when many believed that Mars was inhabited, the term was used to "little green men" originating there. The term even became with "extra-terrestrial", as any aliens were assumed to be of Martian decent.

The War of the Worlds featured Martian invaders, who's appearance was said to have a strange horror. (ENT: "Similitude"). Incredible tales also featured stories about "men from Mars". (DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars")

In 1947, during the Roswell Incident, US Army General Rex Denning referred to the aliens discovered in a crashed flying saucer as Martians. (DS9: "Little Green Men")

Similary, in 1944 in an alternative timeline, the Na'kuhl were described as "martian nazis" (ENT: "Storm Front", "Storm Front, Part II")

When Amelia Earhart was confronted with an Ocampa accompanying the Humans who encountered her in 2371, she assumed that the Humans were trying to trick her into believing that Martians had invaded the Earth. (VOY: "The 37's")

Following the colonization of Mars, the term was used to describe the name of the very colony placed there; aptly named the Martian colonies. (DS9: "In the Cards")
