I don’t know if you’re talking about the manga but I’m gonna respond as if you’re talking about the anime. Well, Marco was sort of Jean’s moral support in episode 8, and I can’t say that many people in the group have done more than he has (which is to say, not very much). Then again, you called Armin useless even though he’s the brains of the group that comes up with the master plans so I guess your definition of useless and mine are totally different.
In the manga. Quite a few of them play a significant role in the story, Christa, Ymir, Annie, Reiner, Connie (although to a lesser point) and Bertholdt being the main ones (Obviously there’s are three main characters as well as Rivaille and Zoe, and I’ll retract my erlier statement of Armin because of one of his discoveries). Even the others like Sasha and (sometimes) Jean. Including moral support for Jean, Marco does two things (and I’m stretching the bounds a tad there). But even with that, in the anime, he showed up once then disappeared, and unlike the other characters in the group, hasn’t showed up during the Battle for Trost, which is why I asked why people act as though he is an important character.
