I thought I'd try to tab out this video from Youtube:

I also tabbed this version on Powertab @ Ultimate-Guitar.com under "The Scientist Acoustic".

The Key of F Major (I think.)

Guitars tuned to E,A,D,G,B,C
Tune high e string down to c

"[   ]"= one measure.

"( )"= previous chord continued. AKA ghost notes.

Verse-

    Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry. 

                                  Fsus2    Dm7
    You don't know how lovely you aaaaaaaaaaare.

(Dm7)         A#/Bb                F                             
    I had to find you, tell you I need you, 

                          Fsus2   Dm7
    tell you I'll set you apaaaaaaaart.

(Dm7)             A#/Bb                     F                               
    Tell me your secrets, and ask me your questions. 

                           Fsus2     Dm7
    Oh lets go back to the staaaaaaaaaaart.

(Dm7)           A#/Bb               F

(A#/Bb)               F                                  Fsus2     A#/Bb
 Nobody said it was easy. Oh it's such a shame for us to part.

(A#/Bb)               F                                     Fsus2 C
 Nobody said it was easy. No one ever said that it would be this  haaaard.

(C stopped)               F           
 Oh take me back to the start.



Interlude- [ F cont'D ][  A#/Bb  ][    F    ][  F, Fsus2 ]x1



Verse-
Dm7              A#/Bb                   F                           
    I was just guessing at numbers and figures.

    Questions of science, science and progress.
 
                               Fsus2   Dm7
    Do not speak as loud as my hearrrrrrrrrt.

(Dm7)               A#/Bb                     F                          
    So tell me you love me, or come back and haunt me. 

                         Fsus2   Dm7
    Oh and I rush to the staaaaaaaart.

(Dm7)            A#/Bb                F

    Coming back as we aaaaaaaaare.



Chorus-
(A#/Bb)                  F                                  Fsus2     A#/Bb
    Nobody said it was easy. Oh it's such a shame for us to part.

(A#/Bb)                  F                                     Fsus2  C
    Nobody said it was easy. No one ever said that it would be this   hard  

(C stopped)                  F           
    Oh take me back to the start.
  

(Here is where Jonny Buckland comes in. He just strums open strings
with his finger on the 12th fret on the A string. Then when they 
get to the 3rd measure, or "f" he bends that 12th fret on the A 
string to a 3/4 bend and release to standard pitch. He bends the 
string four times each measure of [ F ] and [ F, Fsus2 ]. AKA the 
third and fourth measures. I know it's confusing, just watch the 
video carefully and you'll get it.)



Interlude- [ F cont'D ][  A#/Bb  ][    F    ][  F, Fsus2 ]x1


Outro- [   Dm7   ][  A#/Bb  ][    F    ][ F, Fsus2 ]x1


       Dm7      A#/Bb                    F                       Fsus2
            Oh, oooooooo, oooo-oooo-oooo, oooooooooooo
  

       Dm7      A#/Bb                    F                       Fsus2
            Oh, oooooooo, oooo-oooo-oooo, oooooooooooo


       Dm7      A#/Bb                    F                       Fsus2
            Ah, oooooooo, oooo-oooo-oooo, oooooooooooo
       

Then Chris Martin by himself for last part. Lowered volume of guitar too. 
End on a downstroke of "F".

       
  Dm7       A#/Bb                     F (Downstroke)                      
        Oh, oooooooo, oooo-oooo-oooo, oooooooooooo
