The midfield pair, who only had one year to run on their current deals, have signed new three-year extensions.
The news is a major boost for Terrors boss Gordon Chisholm, as both players have established themselves as key players at the club.
"I'm delighted the two have agreed to stay with us and it's a great boost ahead of the Motherwell game," said Chisholm.
"Mark and Barry probably could have hung on to see what offers they got in the summer, but the fact they were both very keen to stay shows that we are moving in the right direction.
"We've now got all the younger lads tied up on good contracts, so hopefully the bond between them will continue to grow.
"I said when I got the job that one of the things I was going to do was build a better team spirit and that's certainly happened."
