The Latics' fate was sealed on Tuesday when they lost 4-1 to Arsenal so, instead of being a winner-takes-all clash, the best Wigan can do in their match against Aston Villa is go out on a high.
It has been a momentous week for Martinez's side, who celebrated the best day in the history of the club seven days ago when they beat Manchester City to lift the FA Cup.
The squad will celebrate their achievement in the town on Monday evening and Martinez will not let relegation rain on their parade.
He said: "It's been a tough lesson of what football is all about - real highs and real lows. In our case it was a real contrast - as high as you can get and as low as you can get. Tuesday night was really difficult, Wednesday was a difficult day, but after that you need to (move on).
"The support of the fans has helped. They have let everyone know at the football club that the FA Cup win is a historic win and we'll never lose that, our name will never disappear from that famous trophy.
"The position in the league is something we can correct, and that's something we have to do as a football club.
"It's a time to look back over the last eight seasons. To have over 300 consecutive games in the Barclays Premier League is an incredible achievement.
"In the last four years we've beaten all the top five teams, we've played everyone eye to eye and I think we've created a phenomenal history for our football club, which means that once the football club will come back at this level, it allows you to have that direction and try to look for a top-10 finish.
"Having the player of the year night (on Thursday), that was a clear message from the fans that they are extremely proud of the achievements of this season and everyone is ready to correct the league status and make sure we do that as quickly as we can."
