Galaxy clusters are dark-matter dominated systems enclosed in a volume that is a high-density microcosm of the rest of the universe.
I will present the most recent results on the distribution of their gravitating and baryonic mass obtained from our projects XMM-Newton Cluster Outskirts Project (X-COP) and CLASH, and how we will improve these constraints with our on-going XMM-Newton Heritage Cluster Project, that will pave the way in using the next generation of X-ray observatories, like Athena, to construct a consistent picture of the formation and composition of galaxy clusters.
