Hi everyone, just found a really good chord structure for this great song by coldplay,

coldplay songs so if you want me to give you the chords to any others, please feel free 
email me on joshhj@btconnect.com and i'll see what i can do for you.

Happy playing!

The Tuning is EADGBd

And you'll need a CAPO on the 6th fret.
