Londres Nova is a city on Mars, located in the northern reach of the Aurorae Sinus. Approximately 40 000 people live and work there.

It is partly underground, and consists of a webwork of tunnels under the Martian permafrost, created over generations of colonists and prototerraformers, using the soil as insulation and radiation shielding in lieu of a planetary magnetosphere. Many of the tunnels are now used as tube stations. There are also ten domes pressing out to the surface; Salton is located under the largest agricultural dome.

The government buildings of the Martian Congressional Republic are located in the city's downtown, Aterpol. There is also a large university in the city; it consists of the lower university in Breach Candy, which is one of the oldest complexes in both the city and on the planet, and the upper university in Salton.
