It seems that I cannot do this with the "sequence" formula... or can I?

I want to auto-populate a column with values in the following format:
C001
C001
all the way up to C999.

Is it possible to automate this in Excel / Google Sheets? I'm actually using Google Sheets but an Excel answer is likely equally valid.

Thank you.
