MarcoPolo-R is a sample return mission to a primitive Near-Earth Asteroid (NEA).

The MarcoPolo-R mission proposal was submitted in 2010 to ESA in response to the Call for medium-size (M-class) missions in the Cosmic Vision 2015-2025 plan with a launch opportunity in the period 2020-22.

In February 2011 MarcoPolo-R was one of four missions recommended by the ESA advisory structure and selected for an assessment study.
