How to find each Earth landmark

In order to find each of the landmarks on Earth, you first have to find a corresponding book. Picking up each book gives you a side mission to find the landmark, creating a quest marker on the map that you can land at. Here is a list of all of the landmarks and how to find their respective books:

Empire State Building – New York landmark

The Empire State Building can be found through the book Our Lost Heritage. This can be found in the President’s Office in MAST Headquarters in New Atlantis. Simply head to the MAST building and take the elevator up to Central Command.

The Gateway Arch – Saint Louis landmark

The book required to find the Gateway Arch is The Price of Destiny. This can be found on the desk of Benjamin Bayu’s penthouse in Neon. Pickpocket the key from Bayu and take the elevator up to his penthouse above the Astral Lounge.

US Bank Tower – Los Angeles landmark

To find the US Bank Tower, you need the Hope Family Tree book. This can be found on Ron Hope’s desk, CEO of HopeTech. Head to the HopeTech HQ in Hopetown on the planet Polvo in the Valo system, and head to his office where you’ll find the book.

The Shard – London landmark

The Shard can be found from a copy of Oliver Twist. This can be bought from Sinclair’s Books, one of the Akila City shops.

The Great Pyramids of Giza – Cairo landmark

Just like with The Shard, the book required to find the Great Pyramid can be purchased from Sinclair’s Books in Akila City. The book in question is The Ancient Civilization of Egypt.

Burj Khalifa – Dubai landmark

In order to find the world’s tallest building, you’ll have to take on the Starfield Breaking the Bank quest, where the book can be found on the desk of Larry Dumbrovsky. Progress the quest until you can enter his quarters and take Race to the Heavens from his desk to locate the Burj Khalifa.

International Commerce Center – Hong Kong landmark

The Hong Kong International Commerce Center can be located by picking up Maurice Lyon’s journal. You can get this in the Sol system by heading to the New Homestead Museum on Titan, one of the moons of Saturn.

Shanghai Tower – Shanghai landmark

To find the Shanghai Tower, you’ll first need to find the book Essentials of Modern Macroeconomics. This is found in the classroom on the ECS Constant ship which is in orbit around the planet Porrima II in the Porrima star system.

Abeno Harukas – Osaka Landmark

This one can be found by progressing the Crimson Fleet questline until you meet Delgado on The Key in the Kryx system. Head to Delgado’s quarters where you’ll find the Diary of Kyosuke Nagata. 

Apollo 11 moon landing site – Apollo landmark

This one can be found fairly early on. Simply head to Matter’s bedroom in The Lodge in New Atlantis (right next door to your room) and you’ll find Sir Livingstone’s Second Journal on the desk.

Mars Rover – Mars landmark

This one can only be found through progressing the story until the Starfield Unearthed quest. This will lead you to the NASA Launch Tower on Mars, where you’ll find a museum featuring exhibits from previous NASA space programs. Look for the MER (Mars Exploration Rover) Program exhibit and interact with the nearby kiosk. This will teach you a bit about the program and give you the location of the Mars Rover in your quest log.
