Page Post Ads:
"Page Post Ads are advertisements that begin as posts on a fan page but get additional paid distribution among fans, friends of fans, or non fans within News Feed or the sidebar".
With Promoted Posts, you pay a flat rate to reach a number of people. These are your own posts that you choose to promote through the promote button.
Marketplace Ads are the ads that display on the sidebar of any page you're looking at on Facebook.
