This is a list of Members of Parliament (MPs) elected to the third parliament in the reign of King Charles I in 1628.

The third parliament began on 16 March 1628 and was held to 26 June 1628. The second session of this parliament began at Westminster on 20 January 1629 and was held to 2 March 1629 when it was adjourned to 10 March and then dissolved. Following dissolution of this parliament, Charles exercised eleven years of Personal Rule without parliament until April 1640 when the Short Parliament was convened.
