How do you feel?
Astronauts exploring a newly discovered planet for the first time would never send a team immediately down to the surface. They would spend months/years analyzing every part of the planet using drone and/or rovers to collect data. Even if (after all the research) they decide to send a crew down to the surface, they would definitely not go without wearing a protective suit and helmet. They'd need to shield themselves from any unknown bacteria (or spores) that weren't detected during all the non-human inspections.
