Lockheed Martin? No.

Lockheed Martin? No. 

Do you just hate them, or do you have some other reason?

I'm very pessimistic about near-future space travel.

History will remember Trump supporters as brainwashed as*holes who voted against their own freedom, self-preservation, and right to live.

Lockheed Martin? I doubt it. The first to have a base on Mars will definitely have government funding (because as much good as Musk has done for commercial space flight, no investor on Earth is touching off-world colonies until the first ten are actually established), but I'd sooner and more generously bet on it to be SpaceX or Blue Origin.

Didn't say they'd be the first. Their plan is to get to Mars orbit a few years after SpaceX lands.

Company culture. These sort of corporations are highly risk averse. Without strict government support there is no way a Mars base is coming to fruition from this company.

While Elon is (assuming he is not lying) running a commercial space company in order to colonise Mars. Lockheed are running a commercial space company for profit, which means any effort towards Mars from them is conditional on NASA/US Govt. paying them to do it. (don't know who else would have the money or inclination, I imagine they cant do anything that transfers rocket knowledge to other nations which limits that avenue. 

 

Once SpaceX has regular mars missions going no one is going to pay billions for Lockheed to launch their experiment, so there's a pretty small window where they might ​get funding. 

 

I guess if Trump is really serious about space, we could see something? But I suspect its like infrastructure, and Trumps solution will be more along the lines of Tax breaks rather than investment.

2033 might be a plausible date--I seem to recall NASA has plans for doing something involving Mars in that year.

Of course, if GEOTUS turns His focus to space in 2018-19, we could be orbiting Mars by 2023.
