A short timeline connecting Marathon and Halo (Thanks Hamish!):
2164: INTERPLANETARY WAR
2194: War between Icarus and Thermopylae
2206: Crash of Traxus IV.
2214: United Interplanetary League sets up rules for the appropriate use and storage of Battleroids.
2291: FASTER THAN LIGHT
2310: FIRST WAVE
2362: THE ODYSSEY
2390: INNER COLONIES
2395: Purchase of Deimos from Free holders by UESG.
2405: Marathon project begins pre-construction phase.
2408: Deimos conversion begins.
2442: Third Martian War begins.
2445: Third Martian War ends after four years of fighting.
2472: Marathon completed sixty four years after coversion begins. The Marathon launches.
2490: THE BIRTH OF THE OUTER COLONIES
2530: THE COVENANT WAR BEGINS
2531: THE BATTLE OF HARVEST
2535: THE OUTER COLONY MASSACRED
2536: THE SIEGE OF THE INNER COLONIES
2552 AND BEYOND: HALO
2773: Marathon arrives at Tau Ceti.
2787: Colony on Tau Ceti established.
2794 07/25: Marathon attacked by Pfhor.
2794 10/25: Pfhor arrive at Tau Ceti. Colony destroyed.
2811: Durandal arrives at Lh'owon.
c. 2861: Tycho clones help the Pfhor delay their defeat to around this date
2881: Pfhor system sacked by the combined fleets of Earth and the S'pht'Kr.
2886: Leela's light-speed warning message reaches Earth.
12811: Durandal returns to Earth in a Jjaro dreadnought he calls Manus Celer Dei.
As you can see, the two universes clearly don't match up. While the Covenant war could take place during the flight of the Marathon, the earlier events couldn't have both happened. In the Marathon universe, the Marathon is the first colony ship and doesn't have FTL engines. In the Halo universe they developed FTL engines and were beginning to colonize nearly 200 years prior to the launch of the Marathon.
If the two universes really are connected, Bungie's going to need some Jjaro magic to explain things.
