Curiosity, the car-size, one-ton rover is scheduled to land in Gale Crater at about 05:31 UTC on August 6, 2012 (08:31 Finnish time).
The landing will mark the beginning of a two-year prime mission to investigate one of the most intriguing places on Mars.

Here is a nice presentation of what the spacecraft and the rover will go through in entering Mars atmosphere and the landing in it's self on "Mars-ferma".
