One of the first steps is visiting your consulate. Most of them will give you the possibility of registering as a citizen of your country, so if you loose your passport and/or identity card or if they are stolen, you can request a new one without having to present another form of ID.

At the end of this paragraph, you will find a list of addresses and phone numbers of all of the consulates in Madrid. Those not on the list are represented by organisations or embassies.
