    You didn't say which planet; I'm not responsible for someone else's mistake.

    Fine, what continent is it on?

    Is the height of Olympus Mons from the lowest point on Mars to the summit? Or is it based on some hypothetical sea level?

    I'll stir up some debate. How about Mount Kosciusko, Australia (that's a country and a continent).

    Like Australia, Mars is both a country and a continent.

    This raises an interesting point; isn't sea level an arbitrary measure of elevation?
