The Marcasian plate (Arithide Sallos Marcasseini ['sallɔs mɔ'kassɪni]) is the continental tectonic plate that carries the continent of Marcasia, as well as half the Chisthian Sea to the south, and most of the Artya to the north. It is bounded on the east by the oceanic Maellorian plate, with which it shares a destructive convergent boundary, on the west and south by the Canthauresian and Arophanian plates respectively, with both of which it shares constructive divergent boundaries—with the latter the result has been the Chisthian Sea and the Ingas archipelago, while the former the Gileican Islands.

The northern boundaries of the Marcasian plate are unverified.
