In "A" auto mode everything is going to be done for you.

In "P" program mode you'll need to set some things. It is likely set to a single focus point or a small cluster of focus points, which is what many professionals and enthusiasts use.

Press the af selection button (far right button near the top - looks like the plus sign made of dots) and then quickly press the M-Fn button on the top. If you are looking through the viewfinder you will see that it is toggling between different types of focussing - Including autofocus.

Hope that is helpful.

BTW - When I got my first advanced dslr I took the manual to bed every night for a week to understand how it worked and I still refer to it occasionally.

Canon has some interesting videos explaining how the 5D Mark III focus system works on their website.
