Update extensions before or after joomla update?

Featured Lock Resolved Issue

I must one day put a site and its extensions.
Currently the website is under joomla 3.8.3
and the following extensions:
> Helix3 - Ajax 2.4
> shaper_helix3 2.4
> shaper_spectrum 1.3
> System - Helix3 Framework 2.4

Do I have to update extensions or Joomla first?

Thank you

Joomla 3.8.3 was published Feb 2018
