I am not familiar with the 5DIII, but AI Servo requires that you half press the shutter release (or use the back button method) in order for the camera to track and focus. The self timer would just trigger the shutter at the end of the timing cycle, with no time included for a half press. I would imagine that solidstate9's suggestion to use the remote would be the way to do it, or use f/16, set a high ISO to insure a fast enough shutter speed at f/16, and zone focus.
