Yes, Lord Vishnu's multiple avatars can exist at the same time on earth.

For example,

Lord Parashurama and Lord Rama were present at the same time (Valmiki Ramayana: Balakanda: Sarga 74-76)

Lord Parashurama and Lord Krishna were present at the same time (Mahabharata: Udyoga Parva: Bhagwat Yana Parva: Section XCVI)

Lord Krishna and Lord Vyasa were present at the same time (Mahabharata: Sauptika Parva: Section XIV)

Apart from these instances, Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (Bhāgavata Purāṇa) consider both Lord Balarāma and Lord Krishna as incarnations of Lord Vishnu. And it's well known that Lord Balarāma and Lord Krishna performed many activities together since their childhood.
