    I had these type of spots in my 5D mark 1 many months ago.
    You can send it for cleaning for 20+.... that is the rate for Canon side.
    You be surprised how fast it come back when you do event photography and u only have 1 camera, though.

    Use cloning tool to get rid of them. I don't even bother with them when I can't see them, e.g. in shadow spots.

    Had this problem after my trip to Australia. I flipped the mirror up, gave it a few good BLOWs (with blower lah). All dot cleared.....

    if you are using wet cleaning and there are still spots, then it means you are not doing it properly, simple as that.
    Here is what I have done:

    "Dry" Method
    1. Use blower to make sure all loose dirt are removed
    2. Use Dust-Aid Platinum to lift up dust not removed by blowing
    3. Use blower to blow again
    4. Test shot if not clean, then use "wet" method

    "Wet" Method
    1. Use blower to remove dust
    2. Use Dust-Aid Ultra Clean or Eclipse E2 to clean sensor
    3. Test shot if not clean, then concentrate cleaning on unclean area
