Born in Utrecht of Surinamese descent, Colin started his professional career at PSV Eindhoven – after arriving in the club's youth system at the age of seven – having signed from amateurs HMS. His debut came on 22 August 2001 in a 3–2 home win against FC Den Bosch, and he went on to play three more matches before he was sent on loan to K.R.C. Genk, with whom he won the 2001–02 edition of the Belgian Pro League.
The following season Colin was sent on loan again, to NAC Breda, for which he played every game during the campaign. He returned to PSV for 2003–04 and became a full squad member, making 20 league appearances; NAC eventually showed interest in purchasing him definitely, which was immediately agreed by both player and employer. His solid performances in 2004–05 earned him a transfer to Football League Championship's Norwich City.
Colin had a difficult first year at Norwich and struggled for form, eventually losing his place at right back to Craig Fleming. He was re-instated to the team at the start of the 2006–07 season and ultimately retained his status; however, when new club manager Peter Grant took over, he lost his place to versatile midfielder Andy Hughes.
In early July 2007, Colin was invited to a three-week trial with Eredivisie giants AFC Ajax. On the 30th the move was finalised for a fee of €100,000, and made his official debut for the Amsterdam team in the Supercup 1–0 defeat of former club PSV, winning his second career trophy.
However, after having appeared sparingly during the campaign, Colin moved to La Liga team Sporting de Gijón in August 2008, signing a one-year link. Beginning the season in the starting XI, he was dropped after a 1–7 thrashing at Real Madrid and never appeared officially again.
On 25 August 2009 Colin moved for free to RKC Waalwijk, also in the Netherlands' top level. After only one full season, which ended in relegation, he moved abroad again, signing for Cypriot First Division side Anorthosis Famagusta FC; on 9 February 2012, he extended his contract until 2015.
