Mass is the amount of matter present in an organism while weight of an object is mass along with gravitational force I. e. W=Mg.

 Mass of an object will be same at any point of the universe but its weight depends on the amount of gravity present on that planet thus mass of object on Mars will be same but weight will be different.
