During the 2003–04 English football season, Charlton Athletic competed in the FA Premier League.

Season summary

For the third season running, a late slump in form ended Charlton Athletic's hopes of European qualification. In 2001–02, they had finished 14th after failing to win any of their final 10 games. In 2002–03, they had finished 12th after a not-quite-so dramatic slump. 2003–04, however, did bring Charlton's best Premiership finish to date, as well as their highest league finish since the 1950s, as they came seventh. For much of the season, they had occupied the Champions League and UEFA Cup places, but the familiar end-of-season setback pushed them out of the European places.

At the end of the season, goalkeeper Dean Kiely was named the club's Player of the Year.
