It is argued that one natural choice for the coordinates of the constituents of a baryonic state in a SU( N) gauge theory is the choice of $N\times N$ hermitian matrices. It is discussed that the relevance of matrix coordinates is supported at least by the restricted form of the color symmetry. Based on the previous investigations in this direction, the consequences of this idea are reviewed. The model has been considered in which it originates in the D0-branes of the string theory.
