Mars is different than earth years because Mars is closer to the Sun making it rotate around the Sun slower but it is similar because it is tilted on its axis causing it to have day and night and eclipses. Mars' years are recorded with the Period of Rotation. Mars revolves around the sun once every 687 days.
Mars has 25 degree tilt on its axis. For seasons to occur the planet needs to have a tilt on its axis. Mars also revolves around the sun causing night on one part of the planet and day on the other half giving it colder weather and warmer weather making summer, winter, spring, and fall occur.
