Interim Wales head coach Rob Howley said: "Mark is an important addition to the coaching team.
"He has played the game at the highest level and developed his coaching skills during his time with the Scarlets.
"I'd like to thank Simon Easterby and the Scarlets for allowing Mark to join us and to start work immediately."
Jones said: "It is a huge honour for me to be called upon by Wales for the Six Nations and I am looking forward to this exciting opportunity for me to develop further as a coach.
"It will help me to explore new ideas and gain wider experience that I hope will in turn benefit my full-time role with the Scarlets region."
