Marsden, a residential suburb, is four km south of Logan Central and 24 km south of central Brisbane.

A suburb of the 1970s-80s, Marsden included Crestmead, the suburb adjoining it to the south. The area's first development was in Crestmead.

Until 1979 Marsden was divided between Albert and Beaudesert Shires along Browns Plains Road. When Albert Shire was abolished in 1979, Marsden came entirely within the new Logan shire (now city). The suburb was named after Violet Marsden, treasurer of the local progress association.
