Well, some further thoughts........
There are some things we would not be able to control.
The gravitational field.
The electrical field and it's associated magnetic field.
I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that there was lightning
on Mars. This would provide that requsite lightning strike.
An electrode passing thru the "glass wall" of the
Martian Landscape.can conduct a voltage spark
from a Van De Graff generator or a Tesla coil.
I don't think a spark of electricity will contaminate the
"soil". There is the question of micro amounts of material
from the electrode being deposited inside from the discharge
of the spark.
I would also suggest that material from several different meteorites
be in the container for the Martian soil.
As to what the Earth "bug" would be that's put into Mars enviroment---
I leave this up to someone more qualified to answer.
Then we have the reverse of all this should we ever discover
a Mars "bug"
