The Marque is a 32 km long river in France, right tributary of the Deûle. Its source is near the village Mons-en-Pévèle. Its course crosses the Nord département, notably the eastern part of the agglomeration of Lille. It flows northwards through the towns of Pont-à-Marcq, Tressin, Villeneuve d'Ascq, Croix and Marcq-en-Barœul, finally flowing into the Deûle in Marquette-lez-Lille.
