It should be possible to add further placemarks by loading a text editable KML 
Adding these additional placemark kmls to the standard view might be a bit 
tricky: Marble loads a text editable "DGML" file that describes each map theme.
In there you'll find the file names for the files that are loaded for the 
"standard view". You can add your own ones (once they have proven to work when 
you simply try to open the KML from the File-Menu entry.

The standard view data is originally created from KML files (and got saved into 
binary data streams). These KML files are shipped with Marble's sources.

Hope this helps -- don't hesitate to ask further questions if things are

We'd be very interested in such contributions :-)
