Like this :

I am not sure what the question was nor what the solution is. Can you elaborate to make this useful for future readers?
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

I guess Thomas wanted to show how to write a transported matrix in a way that the superscript comes first - with the mathtools package:

  1. \documentclass{article}
  2. \usepackage{mathtools}
  3. \begin{document}
  4. $\prescript{t}{}{M}$
  5. \end{document}

Yep, it was to propose another option than or

If the matrix is larger, like :
  1. \begin{pmatrix} a & b \\
  2. c & d \end{pmatrix}

then the 't' appears at the same height than usual exponents. With the \prescript solution, it appears on the top left corner.
Besides, it can be useful to chemists or physicists to for atoms.
