Nicolas Marin (born 29 August 1980) is a French footballer who plays for Super League Greece side Skoda Xanthi as a midfielder, having previously played for Auxerre, Saint-Étienne, Sedan, Lorient, Plymouth Argyle, SC Bastia, Sion, Lausanne-Sport and Dubai Club.


He began his career with AJ Auxerre before establishing himself as a first-team regular at AS Saint-Étienne and then CS Sedan. Marin joined FC Lorient in 2007, but following a fallout with their manager Christian Gourcuff, Marin agreed to join English club Plymouth Argyle on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent move. But the loan was terminated through mutual consent at the beginning of January 2009. Marin is easily recognizable due to his bleached hair. After returning to Lorient, the club proceeded to terminate his contract. Later that day, Corsica-based side SC Bastia announced that they had signed him until the end of the season.[1] On 11 August 2009, Marin joined FC Sion on free transfer.[2] In July 2011, he signed a one-year contract with fellow Swiss club Lausanne-Sport.[3] After scoring two goals in 13 league games for Lausanne, Marin was released from his contract in January 2012 in order to sign with UAE Pro-League side Dubai Club.[4]
