    Martian building is a building that build in Mars. In this paper, the focus of the construction method that propose for the Martian building will be the Pre�Fabrication which also called Modular Construction. Modular construction is a modern construction that uses three-dimensional or volumetric units which are prefabricated and are originally fully finished in the factory conditions. After that, assemble on site to form the major parts of buildings or complete buildings. The aim and objective of this paper is to compare the construction method and costing analysis for the Martian building. Simulation of the Modular Construction method under the Martian condition (different gravitational force, pressure, temperature, etc.) using Revit and propose the Modular Construction method for the Martian building with economical costing. The problem statement of this paper is difficulty of construction method and costing analysis on the Martian building due to different conditions of Mars and transportation of the materials. This paper discusses the condition of Mars, design loading and material use for the Martian Buildings. Besides that, discuss the characteristics and techniques of the Modular Construction method, comparison of different construction methods and the impact of Modular Construction method to the environment. Finally, come out with the costing analysis of Modular Construction method adopted for Martian Buildings
