The station was opened on 21 April 1908 as part of the first section of the line from Châtelet to Porte de Clignancourt. It takes its name from Rue Étienne-Marcel, which is named for Étienne Marcel, a 14th-century revolutionary and provost of the merchants under John II.

Nearby are the Saint-Eustache church and the Louvre Post Office, which is the only post office in France open nearly 24 hours a day (except between 6:20 and 7:20 a.m.).

In 2019, 2,676,549 riders entered this station, which places it in 195th position for metro stations out of 302.[1]
