It depends where you are but due to the brightness of the planet it you can see it easily 30 minutes before or after sunset. In the link is information on how to locate planets.
After sunset Mars can be found above the eastern horizon starting in August. The page below has links that explain when and where to find mars depending on where you are located.
You can easily see when it is visible in the sky – it’s visibly (and steadily) red. This month, however, Mars is behind the sun (in relation to us), and is therefore not visible. It’s visibility does shift often, so I would recommend checking back with the site listed in the second link below. It’s an interactive sky chart.
Below is a summary of Mars’ activity in 2011, including it’s visibility ( from here). Happy viewing!
Of all the planets, Mars and Saturn are the most easily seen with the naked eye. Also visible are Venus and Jupiter, though these are more difficult to view in general because they are not as bright from Earth.
