Marcus Claudius Marcellus (died circa 148 BC) was Roman consul for year 166 BC (together with Gaius Sulpicius Gallus), for 155 BC (with Publius Cornelius Scipio Nasica Corculum), and for 152 BC (with Lucius Valerius Flaccus).

In 155 BC, he celebrated a triumph against the Apuani.

He was apparently the son of Marcus Claudius Marcellus (consul 196 BC), censor in 189 BC and the grandson of Marcus Claudius Marcellus, the five-times consul.

He founded Corduba (Cordoba) sometime in the 160s or 150s.
