In Rogue One, Darth Vader is introduced in what looks to be a castle (or lair) sitting atop a river of lava. The location looks to be the same planet where Vader was deformed in Revenge of the Sith - Mustafar.


Is it Mustafar in Rogue One? Or is it another planet?

As per official novelization by Alexander Freed, yes.

Describing Krennic's visit there:

“Spit it out, man,” Krennic growled. He’d lost enough time to unconsciousness on a very busy day.
“We received new orders while you were occupied,” Pterro said. Again, he hesitated. “You’ve been ordered to Mustafar. Lord Vader wants to speak with you.” (Chapter 12)

His shuttle pitched and rolled as it entered the atmosphere, riding rivers of black clouds tossed by howling winds. The shuttle’s stabilizers and gravity units maintained an interior equilibrium, but Krennic found the experience no less unsettling for the relative lack of discomfort. He grasped his chair tight, kept his chin raised, and reviewed for the sixth time everything he knew about Darth Vader, recounted every one of a dozen tactics he might use in conference with the man who had made Mustafar his base of operations. (Chapter 13)
