Sun Life Stadium, where the Marlins played from their inaugural season in 1993 until the 2003-2004 season.

This is a list of seasons completed by the Miami Marlins, a professional baseball franchise based in Miami Gardens, Florida, originally the Florida Marlins from 1993 until 2011). The Marlins are a member of both the Major League Baseball's (MLB) National League Eastern Division and the National League (NL) itself. For the first nineteen seasons, the Marlins played their home games at Sun Life Stadium. Beginning with the 2012 Season Marlins play home games at Marlins Park in Little Havana. Despite winning two World Series titles in their history (1997 and 2003), they are one of two MLB teams that have never won a division title in their history (the other being the Marlins' fellow expansion team from 1993, the Colorado Rockies). They are the only current team to have never made the postseason in consecutive seasons, as they have only reached the postseason four times (1997, 2003, 2020, 2023). The only MLB franchises who have won more World Series titles since the Marlins began play in 1993 are the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, and San Francisco Giants (the Atlanta Braves and St. Louis Cardinals have, like the Marlins, snared two championships over the past 30 years).
