But British Prime Minister Theresa May still has a rough day ahead of her as she heads to an emergency summit in Brussels on Wednesday to plead for a new Brexit extension - for the second time in three weeks.
On the eve of an European Union summit of national leaders due to decide whether to grant Britain another Brexit delay, Barnier stressed that the length of any second postponement beyond the current date of April 12 would depend on the rationale presented by Prime Minister Theresa May.
The EU's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, also said the length of any delay will depend on the rationale May presents in Brussels on Wednesday.
"And then comes the question of the conditions of what role we'd want the United Kingdom to play during this extension time", she said. May was headed to Paris later to meet French President Emmanuel Macron, who has appeared to take a harder line on cutting Britain more slack.

On the eve of an emergency EU summit in Brussels, chief EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said the bloc was ready to grand a delay, but that the duration "has got to be in line with the objective of any such extension".
Ahead of Mrs May's meetings with her French and German counterparts, details of the EU's potential demands for another extension to the Article 50 period began to emerge in reports. "This is why I believe we should also discuss an alternative, longer extension".
They want to know, if they say, "Yes", to another Brexit extension, what it will be used for.
It allows the government to seek any extension from May 22 onwards.
Such a scenario exit was "still a risk", the aide said, but was not "the favoured option of France".
