Colonizing Mars

If we find life on Mars, should we still colonize the planet?  Many people say no, both for ethical reasons, and for fear that Martian microbes could prove deadly if they came into contact with humans.  But what if the two strains of life had utterly different genetic bases?  Suppose the Martians live deep underground, where they would not interact with Earth life?.

Questions to be answered.
