You can watch the operations center here on NASA tv. http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/index.html 

Not much is happening right now, the odd communications, people sitting in front of monitors, a photographer walking around taking pictures. I would expect the excitement level to pick up closer to the landing time.

Here is a web link for the lander: http://jpl.nasa.gov/news/phoenix/images-all.php?fileID=8720.
