I don't think it is explicitly stated anywhere in the show, but I think JMS has said that they are terraforming Mars, which is why they can get away with breathers and duffle coats rather than spacesuits.You'd have to crash a lot of comets into Mars though to get sufficient water vapour and other gases released to increase the atmospheric pressure significantly.
