For me, the Marathon Plus is the go-to for city street commuting, where broken glass is an issue and where having a flat could get one docked or even fired. Also, to avoid a sweat one might not be hammering: the weight of the tire is less a factor when not accelerating so much.
I use the 28-622 Marathon Plus for my unloaded rides up and down Pacific Coast Highway here in San DIego County. Lots of thorns on the roads which momentarily sideline many cyclists. Not me! I save my XR's for touring....
