Regions and Models that are receiving the Marshmallow update:

Only select models of the aforementioned devices are getting updated to Marshmallow. These models are the D6503 Xperia Z2, the D6603 Xperia Z3, and the D5803 Xperia Z3 Compact. Also, the roll-out is not global, as of now, it is only limited to the US, Middle East, Russia, Ukraine, Latin America, and North Africa.

So for all those who are using the mentioned Xperia device in the select regions, check your phone if it has received the update yet. If not, you can check for it manually by going to settings > about phone > check for update. Being an OTA update, it might even take a week’s time to hit your device as such roll-outs are done in a phase-wise manner.
