At present, we can only aim interplanetary payloads to within 6 miles of a target at best. As those pre-packaged bundles will be arriving months or years before we will, it's not unreasonable to project that the first Mars mission might have a 1-2 month period dedicated to locating and assembling the various pieces of their habitat.

Sheyna E. Gifford, MD, MA, MS

What do you say during your last few minutes "on Earth"? Things will break. We will not. How I know that I just can't say.
