I feel that Developer is a logical sequence after Programmer. Once you develop the assignment, you will be able to come across a number of design issues which will be helpful when you go in for Architect.
It depends on your personal inclination too.

I think Sun's intention is to allow people to specialize. If you want to "get your hands dirty" as a developer, the Developer certification will obviously carry more weight. If you work as an architect, designer or hand-waver, then the Architect certification is more appropriate.
Obtaining all three certifications (SCJP, SCJD, SCEA) will show that you are well-rounded and can tackle problems at any level.
I suggest that you plan to obtain all three, but you can take SCJD and SCEA in either order.

One question worth asking is: which of the two can I get
quicker, Developer or Architect certification? I saw a post
from one Developer saying it took 60 hours over a two month
period for him to do the assignement. That sounds good.
Aaron Robinson's notes on the Architect exam seemed to
suggest quite a lot of heavy reading (three books) would
be needed just to get part I (which doesn't even get you a certificate!).
Does anyone have who has done the exams have any comments about these estimates/workloads?

For someone new in Java (no previous experiences), and just passed SCJP, I think that solid 120 hours are more close to the consensus of SCJD exam assignment according to our SCJD study Group's discussion. To these people, I think taking SCJD to get second-to-the-real-world experience is more logical than SCEA too.

Correctly me if I'm wrong.
From the exam objectives, it seems to me that SCEAJ is more focus on J2EE rather than JDK. Developer exam focuses alot on JDK.
