Marshall's early career saw him come through the ranks at Isthmian League side Carshalton Athletic before he joined Conference Premier club Grays Athletic for the 2007–08 season after unsuccessful trials with Premier League club Reading and League One side Yeovil Town. He was loaned out to Eastleigh of the Conference South in January 2008, and joined the club permanently before the end of the month.
During the pre-season of 2008–09 he joined Swindon Town on trial, but was originally not offered a deal as Town continued their pursuit of winger Kevin Betsy. A subsequent loan offer from Bournemouth was rejected. However, Swindon's move for Betsy failed as the player joined League One rivals Southend United and Marshall finally joined Swindon in early August 2008 on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee. His debut for the "Robins" came in a 2–0 defeat away to Cheltenham Town on 16 August. He continued to make a number of cameo appearances from the substitute bench under manager Maurice Malpas, but his involvement with the first team ended at the same time as Malpas' departure in November 2008. New manager Danny Wilson accepted an offer from Bournemouth to take the winger on a one-month loan in January 2009, but Marshall rejected the move. He later made a few substitute appearances as the season drew to a close. Marshall's first season at Swindon saw him make 15 appearances in all competition, all but one as a substitute.
In September 2009, Marshall joined League Two side Hereford United on a one-month loan. The loan was later extended into a second month after he impressed in his early appearances at Edgar Street.

He remained a key player at Underhill for new manager Lawrie Sanchez during the first half of the 2011–12 season. However Marshall tested positive for the stimulant Methylhexanamine following a routine drug test on Boxing Day 2011 when Barnet lost 3–0 at Dagenham & Redbridge; he claimed "to have unwittingly taken a banned substance in a supplement". The Football Association later confirmed Marshall would serve a two-year ban from all football activity, which started from the date of his provisional ban on 20 January 2012. Marshall was released by Barnet following the expiry of his contract in May 2012.
Following the expiry of his ban, Marshall was signed by Coventry City on a short-term contract in February 2014 after impressing manager Steven Pressley on trial. He made his first competitive appearance in two years on 4 February, coming on as a 72nd-minute substitute for Carl Baker in a 2–1 win over Bristol City at Ashton Gate Stadium. In total he made 14 League One appearances during the 2013–14 season, but despite being popular with fans he was not offered a fresh contract in the summer by manager Steven Pressley.

He scored seven goals in 49 appearances in the 2014–15 campaign, and it was reported in The Sentinel that his "combination of skill, pace and work rate made him a favourite among supporters". He was voted as the Away Travel Player of the Year by the club's supporters. He left the club after he rejected the offer of a new contract in the summer, a decision that chairman Norman Smurthwaite described as "silly".
In July 2015, Marshall signed a two-year contract with League One side Bradford City. He made 38 appearances across the 2015–16 campaign, but started just eight league games, and was an unused substitute as Bradford were beaten by Millwall in the play-off semi-finals.
He was nominated for the EFL League One Player of the Month award for January 2017, which was won by Bury striker James Vaughan. In April 2017 he was named Bradford City's Player of the Year for the 2016–17 season. Manager Stuart McCall praised Marshall's consistency and versatility, saying that "he crosses and shoots equally as well with both feet" and "is one of the highest for assists in the league". He helped the "Bantams" to reach the League One play-off final against Millwall at Wembley Stadium, and was described by the BBC as "particularly influential" in the match; he provided a goalscoring opportunity to Billy Clarke, but Clarke's shot was saved and Bradford lost the game 1–0. Marshall was reported to have made 261 crosses and 285 completed dribbles in League One in 2016–17, ahead of any other player in the division.
On 17 June 2017, Marshall signed a two-year contract with League One club Charlton Athletic; "Addicks" manager Karl Robinson said he was "one of our main targets" alongside former Bradford teammate Billy Clarke.

He made 23 appearances in the first half of the 2019–20 season, though started just three league games, before leaving the club upon the expiry of his contract on 23 January 2020; "Gills" manager Steve Evans said Marshall was "unlucky at times" and cited budget constrains for his decision not to offer Marshall a contract extension.
Marshall joined League Two side Northampton Town on a short-term deal on 25 January 2020. Manager Keith Curle said he was please to bring in "a player with pace, trickery, a strong work ethic" despite "really strong competition" from other clubs. The season was curtailed early due to the COVID-19 pandemic in England and Northampton went on to qualify for the play-offs; Marshall played as a 31st-minute substitute for Nicky Adams in the behind closed doors Wembley final as the "Cobblers" recorded a 4–0 victory over Exeter City to secure promotion into League One.
