Default Sun-Mars General Lissajous Orbit Datasets

Attached is a .zip file containing .xlsx spreadsheets containing the datasets needed to calculate the state vectors of Lissajous orbits about L1 and L2 of the Sun-Mars system in the Elliptic Restricted Three Body Problem (ER3BP).

With these datasets, one can calculate the state vectors of a vessel on the centre manifold of any given MJD for a planar Lyapunov orbit, vertical Lyapunov orbit, Halo orbit or any general Lissajous orbit of the Sun-Mars system.

Whereas centre-manifold orbits of the Earth-Moon system and Sun-Earth system (for Lissajous orbit datasets see here https://www.orbiter-forum.com/showthread.php?t=40044) are used for 'real world' missions, I cannot think offhand of any practical applications of Lissajous orbits in the Sun-Mars system. As such, these datasets have been calculated so that the curious may investigate.

(It is also possible to calculate datasets for other more esoteric systems (e.g. Sun-Venus, Jupiter-Callisto, etc.) and if there is appetite for that than I'm happy to oblige.)

The procedure for decoding these datasets is the same as for Dialing-up arbitrary Lagrange Point orbits except that one replaces the Earth with the Sun; and the Moon with Mars.
