The big day lands on 6th August and rather than send a cake into space Nasa have decided to release a time-lapse video of its mission so far instead.
The film consists of 548 images taken from Curiosity's Hazcam used to look out for perilous and potentially fatal obstacles such as sand traps.
A similar video was made by a fan a couple of months ago
Curiosity is currently making a many-month journey towards its primary mission destination of Mount Sharp.
Its primary goal to find "evidence for an ancient wet environment that had conditions favourable for microbial life" has already been accomplished.
