do you mean something like this

  {phi*Cos[phi], phi*Sin[phi]}, {phi, 0, 2Pi},
  Epilog ->
    ({AbsolutePointSize[4], Point[Last[#]], 
            Text[First[#], Last[#], {-1, -1}] } & /@ 
        Table[{phi, {phi*Cos[phi], phi*Sin[phi]}}, {phi, 0, 2Pi,
  AspectRatio -> Automatic, PlotRange -> All]
