Born in Sant Antoni de Portmany, Ibiza, Balearic Islands, Marcos was a product of Villarreal CF's youth system, and he made his first-team debut on 24 September 2006 in a 3–2 home win over Real Zaragoza. During the season he was an important attacking weapon for the fifth-placed side in La Liga and, in two starts, scored goals in home triumphs against Real Madrid (1–0) and FC Barcelona (2–0), playing 90 minutes on both occasions.
However, Marcos would be loaned for 2007–08 to fellow top division club Recreativo de Huelva, where he only appeared in half of the campaign's matches, with a goal against Real Murcia (4–2 home win). He returned to Villarreal only to be immediately loaned again, to Segunda División's Real Sociedad; he featured heavily during this spell, but the Basque team failed to achieve a top flight return.
In late July 2009, Villarreal released Marcos, whom immediately signed a four-year contract with Real Valladolid also in the first division, as well as former teammate César Arzo. On 17 October he netted again against Real Madrid, albeit in a 2–4 away defeat, but appeared sparingly throughout the season as the Castile and León side was relegated eventually.
Marcos returned to Villarreal in the 2010 summer, on loan, but was assigned to the reserve squad in the second level. He continued competing in that tier in the following years, with Xerez CD, SD Ponferradina and CE Sabadell FC.
In the 2015 summer, aged 29, Marcos moved abroad for the first time, joining Polish club Miedź Legnica. In January of the following year he joined the country's Ekstraklasa, signing with Górnik Łęczna.
