Oil spreads out a lot so a little goes a long way and looks worse than it usually is. It could be a driveshaft seal or the sump plug you would really have to get under it and look but a little spot like that would probably take weeks to show a level drop on the dipstick.
So where does this bit go then ?
I used the wrong copper washer on the wife's Skoda the other day. THere is the tiniest leak, about 1 drop every half an hour may be. Worried? No, not in the slightest.

A 10pence spot after a few hours?
Gosh! That engine must be almost brand new...
(You really don't want to see the floor of my garage... )
A 04 is nearly a decade old. Some wear and tear must be expected...
Same with the exhaust. They don't last forever. In some countries we expect it to last 5 - 7 years. (Snow, gravel roads, salt... stuff just eat the exhaust.)

**3 thumbs up to the smooth drive
I bet it's the sump plug, mine did the same a couple of months back following an oil change, I just nipped it up a bit tighter and it's not dripped since.
It's a Citroen, think yourself lucky it's only the size of a 10p piece! :lol:
Unless you are OCD about having a pristine driveway I wouldn't worry about it, or just put something underneath there to catch and drips after you've parked up.
Mine leaks from the driveshaft oil seal, and has a mystery engine oil leak somewhere, so I don't think you're doing too badly
