England last played Bulgaria during the qualifying stages for Euro 2012, with England winning 4-0 at Wembley in September 2010 and then 3-0 away in Sofia.
Montenegro have also had recent history against England; a 1-1 draw in Podgorica during qualifying for the 2014 World Cup before England won 4-1 in the return fixture at Wembley.
Kosovo is a new opponent for England, with the nations having never met following Kosovo's official recognition as a national team by UEFA in 2016.
It will be the first time that Southgate has faced all of these teams as senior manager and he admits he's looking forward to starting his prep work ahead of March.
"Now is a chance to look at some other teams and their strengths and weaknesses," said Southgate.
"And they'll have had competitive games in the Nations League themselves so that gives us an insight into how they're likely to approach these matches.
"We've got a huge motivation to get to the finals because we're going to host matches at Wembley, so that should make sure complacency isn't part of the equation.
"It's not something we've seen from this group of players in the time we've worked with them and I don't expect it to be the case now."
