Neil Armstrong was the first man on the Moon, and the first part of his body to touch the Moon (through his spacesuit, of course) was his left foot.

This was the point at which he made his famous declaration: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind".

Buzz Aldrin was also present in the space craft with Armstrong in 1969. He was the second man on the Moon, whilst Armstrong (as the mission's pilot) also took the title of the first man to land a craft on the Moon.

The Apollo 11 Moon Landing
The Apollo 11 Moon landing was the first manned landing on the Moon, and landed on the lunar surface on the 20th July 1969.

The two astronauts took measurements from the surface, and installed a device that still collects readings for NASA to this day.

Because the Moon has no atmosphere or weather, the tracks left behind by Armstrong and Aldrin can still be seen to this day. In fact, close-up images of their footprints have been captured and beamed back to Earth by a NASA spacecraft locked in orbit around the Moon.

I spent a long time looking for this answer, and it turns out his left foot was the first to make contact with the surface of the Moon.
