40K TDI Maintenance- Any particular task order?

I am about to perform a 40K maintenance on my 2015 TDI tonight and just wanted to see if anyone could answer this question. I'm glad I've joined this board as many of these guides have made this $700 dealership service incredibly doable.

Is there any particular order of fluid/filter changes that I should follow? Since the battery has to be out for DSG, and having to change the fuel filter, if I don't start the vehicle immediately will that affect the priming of the engine?

I'm not sure, but some owners fill the fuel filter case with diesel before starting so as to shorten the priming time. Some add a dose of lubricity additive to the diesel for extra piece of mind. Others say it's not worth worrying over, as it's been said that a number of VW Dealers neglect to perform the VCDS priming cycle even when the battery is connected.
