I'm looking for information on the current coordinates of Mars Science Laboratory's Curiosity Rover.

I've only found the landing site coordinates 4.5895°S 137.4417°E (Bradbury Landing).

For the layman interested in coordinates, go here and then click on the map link for any given day:

http://curiosityrover.com/tracking/drivelog.html

Then you're in the "Google Mars" view, with the rover's path displayed. Of course, you could figure out something to get a list of coordinates in a standard map format. But if you're looking for something simple, I suggest just pointing your mouse at the object you want and reading the coordinates in the bottom right of that screen:

From Twitter:

SPICE kernels for my location are available here http://naif.jpl.nasa.gov/naif/. For less technical locations, see https://foursquare.com/marscuriosity

NASA is very open. For example, you can get more than 50,000 raw images from the Curiosity mission at the MSL website, and it's updated as they come in.
