Targetting M dwarfs has been an observationnal advantage for many detection methods. Searching for planets around them did yield many landmark discoveries, including several Earth-class planets orbiting in so call habitable zones. I shall review current efforts to make the sensus of exo-earths amenable to atmospheric characterization and the prospects to probe the composition of their atmosphere with current and next-generation telescopes.
