Rolando Maximiliano "Bruno" Martins Indi (born 8 February 1992) is a Dutch professional footballer who plays as a defender for Eredivisie club AZ Alkmaar and the Netherlands national team.

Martins Indi began his career with Dutch club Feyenoord, after progressing through the club's youth teams. He spent four seasons at De Kuip, making 120 appearances before moving to Portugal in July 2014 to play for Porto for a fee of €7.7 million. In August 2016 Martins Indi joined Premier League side Stoke City on loan for the 2016–17 season. A year later, he signed for Stoke permanently for a fee of £7 million. After 137 games for Stoke, he returned to the Eredivisie with AZ in 2021, initially on loan.

A full international for the Netherlands since 2012, he has gained over 30 caps and was part of their squad which finished third at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Born in Barreiro, Portugal, to parents from Guinea-Bissau, Martins Indi moved to Rotterdam, Netherlands, with his family, at the age of three months. He began playing football with youth teams at amateur club Spartaan '20 before joining the Feyenoord Academy at the age of 13.

Martins Indi was eligible to play for either Portugal or the Netherlands as he has a dual passport; additionally, he was also eligible for Guinea-Bissau, his parents' nationality. Martins Indi favoured the Dutch team. On 25 October 2009, Martins Indi made his debut for the Netherlands under-17 squad in a 2–1 loss to Colombia at the 2009 U-17 World Cup before coming off for Ouasim Bouy in the 79th minute. This was his only appearance for the Dutch U17 team. On 23 May 2010, Martins Indi was called up to the Netherlands under-19 squad and played the full 90 minutes in a 3–0 victory over Germany.

On 15 August 2012, he played his first full international game against Belgium. Despite the Netherlands losing 4–2, Martins Indi made an impressive debut and helped create both Dutch goals. He became a regular player during qualification for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, scoring his first international goals in 4–1 defeats of Hungary and Romania. In 2013, Martins Indi represented the Netherlands under-21 team at the UEFA Under-21 Championship. His performances saw him included in UEFA's all-star squad for the tournament.

On 13 June 2014, Martins Indi made his World Cup debut in a 5–1 victory over reigning champions Spain. On 18 June, in his second World Cup game against Australia, he was knocked unconscious by Tim Cahill and taken to hospital with a suspected concussion. He recovered faster than expected and he missed only the final group stage fixture against Chile. The Netherlands eventually finished third in the tournament.

Martins Indi was sent off after 10 minutes of an eventual 2–0 friendly defeat away to Italy on 4 September 2014 after conceding a penalty by fouling Simone Zaza and denying him a goalscoring opportunity. In a UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying match on 3 September the following year, he was again dismissed for striking Kolbeinn Sigþórsson, as the Dutch lost 1–0 at the Amsterdam Arena in Danny Blind's first game in charge.

After five years away, Martins Indi was recalled for UEFA Nations League games against Wales and Poland in June 2022.

On 23 March 2012, Martins Indi became a father after his girlfriend Mecia gave birth to a daughter. Martins Indi is fluent in Portuguese and still speaks it with his parents. He is an observant Muslim.
