Seriously though, your gonna have to be more specific.
How far can a space marine fall in full power armour without damaging himself/his armour?

Lets say they were landing on concrete or similar.

Well anything that would just about likely outright kill a human can probably be survived by a Space Marine (at least if they intentionally jumped and landed correctly) in power armour, much higher than that though and the Armour is going to suffer some severe damage as it's servos go into overdrive trying to absorb the impact.

I'd say that anything over 30-40m is a death sentence for a Marine even in Power Armour, of course as with the current day sometimes an individual will be just plain lucky and somehow survive.

One: I would need to know the material he is hitting.
Two: I would need to know the amount of force a marines internal organs can take before they rupture( assuming it is different than your average human).
Three: I would need to know how much force would be taken by the armor.
Four: I would need a physicists to give me the answer because I don't think I would get it right.

If they are like MK VI armor(Spartan) it can survive a drop from low orbit. Although something tells me it ain't that good.

In Red Fury a Marine that was dropped over 100m above the ground on to Marble (or stone similar to Marble) essentially exploded when he hit the ground.

Yeah, I suppose the tech isn't quite as good as the MKVI armor, but than again it isn't suppose to be. Although that it a different topic all together.
