val items = List("a", "b", "c")

sqlContext.sql("select c1 from table")
          .filter($"c1".isin(items))
          .collect
          .foreach(println)


The code above throws the following exception.

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: Unsupported literal type class scala.collection.immutable.$colon$colon List(a, b, c)

According to documentation, .isin takes a vararg, not a list. So, I will suggest you to covert it into vararg and then proceed. Try doing this:

val items = List("a", "b", "c")

sqlContext.sql("select c1 from table")

          .filter($"c1".isin(items:_*))

          .collect

          .foreach(println)

Your variant with mkString compiles, because one single String is also a vararg (with number of arguments equal to 1), but it is probably not what you want to achieve.
