This paper discusses operational lessons learnt from the 2013 Euro\-Moon\-Mars-B (MDRS crew 125) analogue campaign for future habitat operations on the Moon and Mars. The two-week campaign conducted a series of geologic, technological, operational, and human factors research toward the goals of the International Lunar Exploration Working Group (ILEWG). The results from those operations provide recommendations for future crewed expeditions for increasing the science return based on improved resource allocation and crew habitation.
