Fotheringham played three times for Celtic, graduating from the youth ranks at Parkhead. At the time of his debut, he was the youngest player ever to play in Celtic's first team. In 2003, he moved to one of his hometown clubs, Dundee F.C

After two years with the Dark Blues, making 59 appearances and scoring four goals in all competitions, Fotheringham moved to Germany with SC Freiburg, where he played for a season. After an unsuccessful trial with Leeds United, Fotheringham moved to FC Aarau of the Swiss Super League in 2006 but left midway through the season.

Fotheringham began training with Rangers in January 2007 in a bid to earn a contract. However, he decided to join Norwich City on 31 January until the end of the season, with the option of a one season extension to his contract, which was taken up, keeping him at Norwich until the summer of 2008.

On 23 May 2008, Fotheringham agreed a new one year deal to stay at Norwich for the 2008–09 season. It was also confirmed that he would remain as club captain, however a number of other players including Darel Russell and Gary Doherty filled this role in his periods of absence from the team during the season. In March 2009, following an incident where he stormed down the Carrow Road tunnel having been substituted in a match against Coventry City, Fotheringham was stripped of his captaincy role to be permanently replaced by Doherty. He never played for the club again, and was released in April 2009.

On 28 May 2009, it was announced that Espanyol were interested in signing him, and Fotheringham joined Espanyol for a week long trial in June 2009. Derby County manager Nigel Clough then offered Fotheringham the chance to join Derby for pre-season training, which Fotheringham accepted, and joined Derby on trial in July 2009. Clough later revealed Derby would not be signing him, with Fotheringham also going on trial at Sheffield United. After clinching a January 2010 move to Cypriot side Anorthosis Famagusta, Fotheringham signed a short-term deal with hometown club Dundee United, for the three months before his move to Cyprus.

In January 2010, Mark Fotheringham signed a contract with Anorthosis Famagusta.

Having joined Sheffield United on trial, Fotheringham signed for Livingston in October 2011. Fotheringham scored in a 2-0 win over Queen of the South on 29 October 2011 and another against Falkirk in a 4-3 loss. Then on 30 December 2011, Fotheringham had his Livingston contract extended by twenty-eight days. He had a brief trial at Wolverhampton Wanderers in January 2012, but was not offered a contract. After the trial, Fotheringham was freed by the club in late-January.

On 7 March 2012, Fotheringham re-joined Dundee. On 30 April 2012, it was announced his contract would not be renewed.

In the summer of 2012, Fotheringham trained with German clubs 1899 Hoffenheim and VfL Wolfsburg.

He signed for Ross County in September 2012. After making sixteen appearances, Fotheringham left Ross County to join Swiss side Luzern. However, it only revealed that Fotheringham went on trial with the club instead.

On 23 July 2013, Fotheringham, signed for Notts County following his successful trial. He now plays for Championship side Fulham.
