The Mar Coliseum is a combat racing track used in the Kras City Grand Championship during Jak X: Combat Racing. Peculiarly named after Mar, as Kras City appears to have no verifiable acquaintance with the figure as he is the legendary founder of but Haven City, it is the smallest arena in the championship. It consists of a flat oval ground area surrounded on all sides by a slanted oval leading inward. In the center stands a statue holding up a considerably large sphere and four other tall statues stand in each the cardinal directions at the slanted oval of the arena. Each of these statues is placed on a flat platform, which in turn is held up by smaller pillars.
These pillars can be damaged with either guns or by crashing into them with enough force, damage enough pillars and the platform and statue on top will collapse. The center will allow access to a green eco pick-up and release the aforementioned large sphere into play, the four other pillars each reveal deadly pitfall traps beneath. Though the sphere appears deadly, it is in fact harmless to drivers and only poses a potential aid when trying to dodge weapons from other racers or using it to confuse them by guiding it into their direction.
The sphere will eventually stop moving, but weapon fire or vehicle collisions will make it move again. There are also a few other obstacles, such as stone pillars, semi-circles large enough to drive through and a handful of light ramps. Due to the coliseum's small small size, the occupation of nearly every space is contested, rendering a hellish center. On the other hand, those with the health to stick around and a full dark eco meter might wish to do so due to the potential of many kills in a row.
