It's all over for the Opportunity:

It was only expected to scoot about the martian surface for three months, yet here we are 15 years later. It was designed to travel just 1,100 yards, yet ended up roving a stunning 28 miles.

Opportunity’s lasted 5,000 charge-discharge cycles and remained at 85 percent capacity up until the robot’s demise.

It's amazing how well these have done. Tremendous engineering.
Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast:
For it is the number of a man; and its number is One hundred threescore and twelve.
