O(1) in Mathematica is O[x]^1.

So for exaple

In[5]:= ArcTan[n*Pi + Pi/2 + O[n]^1] // InputForm

Out[5]//InputForm=
SeriesData[n, 0, {ArcTan[Pi/2]}, 0, 1, 1]

In[6]:= ArcTan[n*Pi + Pi/2 + O[n]^3] // InputForm

Out[6]//InputForm=
SeriesData[n, 0, {ArcTan[Pi/2], (4*Pi)/(4 + Pi^2), -Pi^3/(2*(1 +
Pi^2/4)^2)}, 0, 3, 1]

etc
