In LTE, the eNB broadcasts DCI messages on the PDCCH to all UEs. Basically these DCI messages spell out "the rules" for communicating.

There are many DCI message types. Here is a good link that denotes all the types (formats):

Does wireshark have a dissector for breaking DCI messages down?

No Wireshark does not embed by default a DCI decoder.

Is there a third party dissector that someone knows of that may be able to assist me? Thanks

Not that I'm aware of. Anyway you would need to define a transport format to send it to Wireshark. If you have the raw payload and use simple DCI formats, this tool could be handy.
