I suppose you mean "mark a visible rectangle", so you can actually
see the rectangle on the screen.

CUA-mode can do that.

Option 1: 
Get CUA-mode from the link below.
Install and enable it.
Then use S-return to mark a (visible) rectangle.

Option 2:
Get the "soon-to-be-released" emacs 22.x from savannah.gnu.org.
It has cua-mode (a successor to CUA-mode) built in.
Enable cua-mode (from the Options menu).
Then use C-return to mark rectangles.
