What can be found in Starfield’s Cydonia? Cydonia is a large mining settlement found on Mars. The entire city is located underground due to the inhospitable environment; here’s what we know about its locations, possible missions, and factions you’ll face here.

Cydonia is found on the Starfield planet Mars along with the Mars Mech Factory, and is one of the four big Starfield cities featured in the space game. It was one of the first established settlements after humanity left Earth and is made up of a maze of underground tunnels, completely sealed from the outside environment. It’s obviously found in the same system as Earth, so check out our guide to whether Earth is in Starfield and what you’ll find if you visit.

Cydonia locations

There’s lots to explore in Cydonia, and you can expect to take on a few Starfield missions in this area, so there’s no chance you’ll miss it. It’s also a great place to mine Starfield resources, as it’s the largest mining settlement in the United Colonies district, with various traders that can sell some Starfield weapons that pack a serious punch if you have enough Starfield credits on you.

  • The Broken Spear pub
  • UC Security Office
  • Deimos Staryard Engineering

Cydonia factions

It looks like the Starfield United Colonies faction is located on Cydonia, said to be the strongest Starfield faction, though you’ll be sent here on a mission by Constellation. We do know that Earth comes into the Starfield lore and timeline, so we can expect a lot to play out in Cydonia.
