The band
Thirty seconds to mars consists of three members: Jared Leto (lead vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards), his brother Shannon Leto (drums, percussion), and lastly, their friend, Tomo Miličević (lead guitar, bass, strings, keyboards, and other instruments).

The History of 30 Seconds to Mars
How their band name came to be
"Thirty Seconds to Mars" was taken from a rare manuscript titled Argus Apocraphex. Jared Leto spoke of the name as "a reference, a rough translation from the book. I think the idea is interesting, it's a metaphor for the future," he explained. "Thirty seconds to Mars—the fact that we're so close to something that's not a tangible idea. Also Mars being the God of War makes it really interesting, as well. You could substitute that in there, but what's important for my brother and I, is that it be imaginative and really represent the sound of our music in as unique a way as possible." He described it as a name that "works on several different levels, a phrase that is lyrical, suggestive, cinematic, and filled with immediacy."
Their lead singer, Jared Leto, wrote most of the band's songs, with occasional help from his brother, Shannon.

FUN FACT: Bjork wrote their song "Hunter", which can be found on the album This is War.
