Astrobiology Magazine has begun a commemorative series of articles on the Voyager missions to the Red Planet. It describes in detail some of the ways that the Viking engineers tackled problems - or didn't.

You can also read a five hundred page book about Martian exploration from 1958 to 1978 online, although it may be easier to get the print version.
