Marcus Lantz (born October 23, 1975) is a Swedish professional footballer, who playsas a holding midfielder for Landskrona BoIS in the Superettan championship. He has played six matches for the Sweden national football team.

Born in Kristianstad, Lantz started playing football with amateur club IFÖ/Bromölla IF. After one season, he moved on to Helsingborgs IF in the top-flight Allsvenskan championship. He helped Helsingborg win the 1998 Svenska Cupen and 1999 Allsvenskan titles, before he moved abroad in the winter 1999. After a short stop at Torino F.C. in Italy, where he never got to play any games, Lantz moved to FC Hansa Rostock in the German Bundesliga championship in November 1999.

He was instantly a part of the Rostock first team line-up, and in his six seasons with the club, he played 164 league matches. While at Rostock, Lantz chose not to play any more games for the Swedish national team. With his contract running out in the summer 2005, he left Rostock on a free transfer. He joined Danish club Brøndby IF, under manager Michael Laudrup. In his second season with Brøndby, Lantz suffered an injury, which received false treatment and kept him out for two months.

He moved back to Sweden and Helsingborgs IF on the 31 August 2007 and signed a contract until 2011. After his contract ended he joined Landskrona BoIS in early 2011.
