Marques Colston (pronounced /ˈmɑrkɨs ˈkoʊlstən/ MAR-kis KOHL-stən; born June 5, 1983 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) is an American football wide receiver for the New Orleans Saints of the NFL. He was selected in the seventh round of the 2006 NFL Draft as a supplemental compensatory pick. Following the trade of receiver Donté Stallworth, Colston was inserted into the starting lineup for week 1 of the season, becoming one of the few seventh round picks ever to start week 1 for their team. He played college football at Hofstra University.

Colston is one of the part-owners of his hometown Harrisburg Stampede of the American Indoor Football Association.

Colston's father, James, played briefly in the Canadian Football League: Marques began playing football at a very young age. James Colston died when Marques was 14. Colston attended Susquehanna Township High School, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and was a letterman in football and track. In football, he won All-Conference honors as a wide receiver/defensive end. In track, he qualified for the 2001 Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) Outdoor Track and Field Championships in the javelin with a throw of 187 feet (57 m), 10 inches. Colston graduated from Susquehanna Township High School soon after in June 2001.
