Soyuz TMA-10M spacecraft with Roscosmos cosmonauts Oleg Kotov and Sergey Ryazansky and NASA astronaut Michael Hopkins onboard undocked from the Russian segment of the ISS at the time planned.

According to MCC the thrusters were ignited for deorbiting at 06.30 Moscow time. Soyuz TMA-10M was divided into modules at 06.58, the descent module entered the atmosphere at 07.01 Moscow time, controlled descent began at 07.03 and parachute deployment was scheduled for 07.09.

Soyuz landing first was planned for March 12 but then shifted to March 11 because of the deep snow cover in Arkalyk region. Due to this fact the decision was taken to perform the landing in Zhekazgan region.

Kotov and Ryazansky became the first cosmonauts carrying the Olympic torch to the open space. Moreover they set up a record on the work in the open space using Russian spacesuits (8 hours and 10 minutes).

The descent module successfully landed close to the planned region. Soyuz landing was provided by aircrafts, Mi-8 helicopters, search and rescue teams and other equipment.
The teams opened the hatch and helped space travelers to get out of the module. The cosmonauts feel well.

Roscosmos cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin, NASA astronaut Richard Mastracchio and JAXA astronaut Koichi Wakata who became the 1st Japanese ISS commander on March 9 continue working onboard the ISS.
