In a paella pan or large skillet, heat oil over medium heat and cook garlic until soft, about 3 minutes. Add onion and cook for 3 minutes. Add rice and cook, stirring frequently, for about 4 minutes, or until rice becomes translucent. Add 3 cups of the broth, 1 cup of the wine, saffron, paprika, marjoram, red pepper flakes and salt. Cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook 15 minutes. Check occasionally, keeping moist with more broth, if needed. Add all shrimp, scallops, mussels, crab, peas, yellow peppers, tomatoes and the remaining broth and wine. Cover and cook 5 minutes, or until mussels are open and completely cooked. Squeeze lemon over entire dish and sprinkle with parsley. Serve straight from the pan.
