Can anyone tell me what kind of wild ground cover plants these are?
I planted some in my coffee pot terrarium day.

1) chickweed

2) these look like seedlings...
Probably isn't cyclamen... no way you'd be so lucky...
might be invasive english ivy...

3) need something to compare, like a penny.
might be a sedum...
kinda late, but might be spurge.

I would agree with Chickweed for the first, no idea on the second, third doesn't look like any spurge I'm familiar with. It would be better to make separate posts for each plant. That way those that see something the know won't be confused by other plant photos.

The third one looks like a variety of spurge to me.

Is the middle one starting to make differently shaped leaves or is there another plant hiding in the middle?

If the spurge suggestion is in regard to Euphorbia genus, that's easy to check. Does the plant have white (latex) sap inside?

@dj83, where did you find these plants? How small is small? Could you put a ruler beside them for scale? When you crush a leaf, any odor? Or white sap?

It does look like a different type of leaf under the second one.

Yes, the first one is Chickweed.
