Is there any way to retrieve list subscriber counts without actually retrieving the list subscribers themselves? Retrieving the subscribers can be slow, especially with large lists, and for my purposes, I only need the count, not the actual objects.

I'm using the Marketing Cloud/Exact Target c# SOAP API.

Unfortunately SFMC SOAP API doesn't provide any count function. you have to retrieve all records and build your own calculation.
