MARS 15 is a Monte Carlo code for inclusive and exclusive simulation of three‐dimensional hadronic and electromagnetic cascades, muon, heavy‐ion, and low‐energy neutron transport in accelerator, detector, spacecraft, and shielding components in the energy range from a fraction of an electron volt up to 100 TeV. Main features of the code are described in this paper with a focus on recent developments and benchmarking. Newest developments concern inclusive and exclusive nuclear event generators, extended particle list in both modes, heavy‐ion capability electromagnetic interactions, enhanced geometry, tracking, histograming and residual dose modules, improved graphical‐user interface, and other external interfaces.
