Born in Saint-Marc, Haiti, Marcelin began his career with Roulado when he was sixteen, helping the team win the Ligue Haïtienne title in 2003, before moving to Racing Club Haïtien in 2007. In 2008, he moved to the Puerto Rico Islanders of the USL First Division, where he saw limited playing time in league games. However, he played heavily in Puerto Rico's 2008–09 CONCACAF Champions League games. In 2009, he became a regular first team starter. On 11 February 2010, the Portland Timbers (USL) of the USSF D2 Pro League signed Marcelin to a one year contract for the 2010 season where he quickly established himself as a regular first-team starter. He continued with the Timbers when they joined Major League Soccer in 2011, appearing in most games of the season and starting in several ones.
After being released by Dallas, Marcelin spent the 2013 campaign with Antigua Barracuda FC of the third tier USL Pro. In July 2014 he signed with Fort Lauderdale Strikers of the North American Soccer League.
He re-signed with Fort Lauderdale on 3 March 2015.
In 2006, Marcelin appeared for the Haitian U-21 national team. In 2007 and 2009, Marcelin played for the Haiti national football team at the Gold Cup.
