The funnest Coldplay bass part to play, in my humble opinion. It's actually in 4/4, 
it or not, the triplets really throw you of though, so I just count like it's in 3/4. The 
a total whirlwind of sound, you can hear like 5 guitar parts at any given time!
Anyways, we're here to tab out the bass. I got the song down a while ago and have had 
adding to it since. I'll show a few of these throughout the tab, they'll either be in 
( ) or be represented as an alternative the actual tones with [OR].

Intro: No bass for 8 Bars, then...

Night turns to day when I still had these questions.
Who could just blame, shall I go forwards or backwards?
And not since today and I still get no answers.
