The New Frontier Pass is not an expansion. It is a collection of six DLCs, only one of which has been released. You will not see the New Frontier Pass listed in your game, even when it is installed and working correctly. What you will see is the first DLC from the pass, 'Maya and Gran Columbia Pack'. Continue your quest to build your greatest empire with the Civilization VI - New Frontier Pass, featuring eight new civilizations and nine new leaders, and a variety of.
The sixth and final DLC pack is out as part of the New Frontier Pass with a Portugal DLC for Sid Meier’s Civilization VI. Available to all who purchased the pack, or as an individual DLC. It includes the Portugal civilization with João III, the Nau unique unit, and two unique structures, the Navigation School building and the Feitoria.
You also get access to a new Zombies Defense game mode. In this optional game mode, the dead don’t stay dead for long and present an ever-growing threat to the world’s civilizations. On top of that you also get a new Wetlands Map Script and two new World Wonders.

What isn't clear is if Firaxis Games plan anything else for Civilization VI after this. There's supposed to be a balancing patch in April which going by what they said, is going to be a big one touching on lots of different existing civilizations. Firaxis said the balancing patch will touch on two thirds of them, and considering there's now around 50 that's a lot that likely need tweaking to play nicely together. Apart from that though now the Frontier Pass is done, they've delivered on everything they announced for 2020 and 2021 so it will be interesting to see if they bring out a second pass full of content or move onto a new game.
