The battery in the 2010-2014 Chrysler 200 is in the driver-side fender well.
While most batteries are assessable from the engine bay, the Chrysler 200 will need the tire and wheel well splash guard removed to access the battery.
The battery type is a common 12-volts and can be bought at any auto part store or similar.
Replacing it, while harder than a standard engine bay location, can be done by a DIY individual.
Of course, if in doubt, be sure to call a professional.

Replacement is straightforward but not as easy as the battery located in the engine bay like most vehicles.
The car will need to be jacked up and the driver side tire removed along with the wheel well splash guard.
Once the splash guard is removed, the battery can be unbolted and replaced as any other unit would be replaced.
