West Ham midfielder Britton joined The Swans in December on loan while Blackburn ace Richards moved to the Vetch Field in November.
Blackburn and West Ham were happy for both players to stay out on loan in a bid to gain valuable first-team experience.
Swans Director of Football Brian Flynn was delighted to keep the pair at the club as he looks to help climb away from trouble in Division Three.
"I'm extremely pleased that Leon & Marc can stay with us until May," Flynn told the club's official website. "They have both done very well since they came here and have shown that they have the characteristics I'm looking for in my players.
"I'm grateful to the Manager's back at their clubs for allowing us to keep them. They've been monitoring the players in the games that they've played for us and they appreciate the benefits to the pair of them in playing regular, competitive first team football.
"I'm sure that starting at Bournemouth on Wednesday, Marc and Leon are going to play a major role in the battle that lies ahead of us."
