How do you say "The last time....."? For example: When was the last time you went back home? The last time I was here, I was only 12 years old. I played better last time. (sports) This is the last time he will be performing. After this he will retire. Do we say 마지막 시간? Or maybe 지난번? Thank you.

It seems that "마지막으로" can be generally used for the whole sentences provided by you. (내가 마지막으로 여기 있었을 때는 12살 밖에 안됐었어. 마지막으로 했을 때는 훨씬 더 잘했는데. 오늘은 그가 마지막으로 공연하는 날입니다. 이 공연 후 그는 은퇴할 것입니다.) But you can also apply slightly different forms like, (지난번엔 훨씬 더 잘했는데. 이 공연은 그의 마지막 공연입니다.) But for the "he will be performing...", you cannot use "지난번엔" because you are not indicating a previous event. I hope it helps! :-)
