In brief: Similar

Both are inhibitors of the enzyme cyclooxygenase (cox).
There are two forms of this enzyme. Celebrex is considered active against "cox2 only" and Mobic (meloxicam) is considered active against "mostly cox2." this may make them gentler on the stomach than traditional medications like ibuprofen, naproxen, etc.
