I updated to the 20130416070203 build and there is no longer a marketplace icon on any of the homescreen pages.

Axel also confirmed he hit this issue. Reopening for investigation.

two confirmed reproductions. Something is definitely going wrong here.

tef? nom.

Since the marketplace will be a packaged app for new users, this upgrade scenario (while bad!) doesn't warrant tef+.

Let's investigate this regardless.

The root cause of the tef? nom isn't about the marketplace issue in this case. It's about the fact that we can have OTA updates that cause a preinstalled app to completely disappear unintentionally. Operating under the safety that "we will never change our preinstalled apps on device" by an OTA update is a bad idea, as we've seen with related bugs. There's a problem going on here with OTA update flow with preinstalls that needs investigation and a fix. Back to nom on that basis.

here's the last update logs with dates:

root@android:/data/local/updates # ls -l
drwxr-x--- root     root              2013-04-17 21:53 0
-rw-r----- root     root        13266 2013-04-07 16:16 backup-update.log
-rw-rw-rw- root     root        13475 2013-04-17 21:53 last-update.log

I seem to have two local installs of marketplace:

root@android:/system/b2g/webapps # ls -la marketplace                          
-rw-r--r-- root     root         9361 2013-04-07 16:15 manifest.webapp
root@android:/system/b2g/webapps # ls -la
-rw-r--r-- root     root         7576 2013-04-17 21:52
-rw-r--r-- root     root         9360 2013-04-17 21:52 update.webapp

FWIW, I saw the same as comment #0 and comment #1 with those two builds. Gone with the 16th build, back on the 17th build.
I'll hold on noming and talk to Andrew directly about this.

Talked with Andrew about this - the best resolution to do here is to at least investigate what happened during the OTA update from 15th to 16th that would cause this. If it's a bigger underlying issue, then it might be worth noming.

Fabrice - When you get the chance, let's dig into this.

Axel is right.  the bug does have to do with the specific builds.

The name of the app was wrong in the 4/7 build.  You can also see a change in the look of the icon.

I checked an earlier build : 

Then I checked the 4/7 build without updating to it:

After updating from the 4/7 to the 4/17 build, 
2013-04-17-07-02-04 from OTA:
I get 2 marketplace icons:

Thanks for getting that info in here Pike.  I can replicate the double icon issue.  Trying to see if I can duplicate the no icon issue.

Note, I updated the phone with 20130418070205, and the marketplace is there and works.

I bet it's more something about "breaking on first update, fixed on second" than anything else.

Duplicate of this bug: 868861
Maybe related/dupe from bug 834123?
We haven't seen this happen after we did the permanent move to a packaged app. Given that rationale, I'm going to close this as a wont fix, but the root cause is something we should watch out for in the future.
