In summary, you should start with linear algebra, then vector calculus, then differential equations and finally complex calculus.

Which topics? The question is so vague that the only possible answer is: get a list of lectures at any university where mathematics can be studied.

I'd like to study complex analysis, differential equations, vector calculus and topology, the problems is that i don't know what topics are in the middle or what study first.

What math do you currently know?

You should start with linear algebra before vector calculus. Then you can approach differential equations and complex calculus. Set topology is more or less independent of those, although some calculus would be nice to understand the examples. You can do it in parallel. And of course you need all basics in real calculus.
