Marc has been a correspondent for El Periodico for twenty years, starting his career covering the Algerian civil war. He previously worked as a foreign correspondent in Moscow, where he reported on the Chechen war, and on numerous other armed conflicts, such as the 2003 – 2010 Iraq war, the war in Afghanistan, the Darfur crisis and the Arab Spring.

On 4 September, 2013, Marginedas apparently disappeared while on his third reporting trip to Syria. His disappearance was kept secret until 24 September.
