The cover sits right on top of your photo and is most prominent when people open  your profile.

Are Covers Mandatory:
They are not mandatory and if you do not add a cover your Timeline is still visible minus the cover. Timeline without the cover however looks as though something is missing and Timeline was designed with the cover photo in mind.
