Campus Martius, the Field of Mars, was a big empty plain located between the Capitol and the Tiber, outside the Republican walls of Rome, used especially for military events.
At the end of the Republic, this areas was slowly occupied by new constructions, commissioned by protagonists of the History as the General Pompey, the dictator Julius Caesar or the Emperor Augustus.
Here for instance Pompey built the first permanent theater of Rome, and here in the 44 BC Julius Caesar found his death.
