Evans is still feeling the effects of a foot injury suffered in last weekend's Aviva Premiership win over Saracens at Wembley, while Robshaw picked up a knock in training on Thursday.
Rory Clegg will don the No.10 jersey at the Stade Mayol, while Luke Wallace deputises for Robshaw. Tom Guest and Nick Easter complete the back-row, with lock George Robson taking the armband.
Quins fullback Mike Brown is expecting a fierce encounter and a taste of the unknown when they run out in front of Toulon's passionate home faithful.
""We won at Munster last year, we did well at Toulouse and we did well at Gloucester this season, which is another hard place to play," Brown said.
"We will take confidence from those performances, but this is a completely different game. I have never experienced Toulon before, and I don't think this club has either.
"I've heard their war-cry on the television, but I haven't experienced it first hand. They've got a brilliant atmosphere at their ground and the French fans are usually really passionate. I think any rugby player would enjoy playing over there.
"It's a big challenge as they've got some world-class players. That is why this competition is so good now. Toulon are a brilliant team and this could easily be a top-tier Heineken Cup game."
