Given that when you tap "on" here and it indicates "ar," this is misleading. The difference between "ar an" and "dé" is contextual. Without any contextual info here, this question is a 50/50 throw of the dice, which is not helpful for learning when to use which.

ar expresses more habitualness, as can be seen from this entry for máirt. Use with adverbial things ('He will come Tuesday')
