Would a magnet be polarized on a planet that has no magnetic field like mars?

A ferromagnetic bar could be magnetized on Mars by placing it in an energized solenoid, but if you found a lodestone, it would probably not be magnetized. (A few years back I had to demagnetize a TV set that was just a few feet from a conductor which had grounded a lightning strike.)

Yes. And Mars DOES have regional magnetic fields.

A magnet would not change properties in spite of other magnetic flux.

Of course it would. The planet has nothing to do with the magnet.
But a compus wouldn't work on Mars.

A magnet would still be a magnet.
A magnet itself generates it's own magnetic field.
But a compass wouldn't work.
