Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Artist: Coldplay
Song: Politik
Album: A Rush of Blood to the Head

This isn't really a guitar song, but this is a good guide to what the piano is playing.

Chords defined: 
     Low to high
B7: x2120x
Em: 022000
Am6: x32210 this could be called Am/C as well
G: 320033 or 355433 (I think the latter, the bar chord, sounds better - relative to capo)
D6: xx0432
D: xx0232

Capo 1!

[Intro]
B7 Em  B7 Em

[Verse]
B7
Look at earth from outer space
Em
everyone must find a place
B7
give me time and give me space
Em
give me real, don't give me fake
B7
give me strength, reserve, control
Em
give me heart and give me soul
B7
give me time, give us a kiss
B7
tell me you're a politik

[Chorus]
B7 Em  B7 Em

              B7                Em
open up your eyes open up your eyes
              B7                Em
open up your eyes open up your eyes

[Verse]
B7
Give me one, cause one is best
Em
In confusion, confidence
B7
give me peace of mind and trust
Em
don't forget the rest of us
B7
give me strength, reserve, control
Em
give me heart and give me soul
B7
Wars that heal and cracks that fix
Em
tell me you're a politik

[Chorus]
             B7                Em
open up your eyes open up your eyes
              B7                Em
open up your eyes open up your eyes
                   B7
Just open up your eyes

Em   Am6   G   D6   D

Here each chord is played the same amount of time (2 measures I think) except the D
and D6, which are each played half as long as the other chords

Em                     Am6                        G     D6          D
But give me love over, love over, love over this ...  our     love
Em                     Am6                        G     D6          D
But give me love over, love over, love over this ...  our     love

Em   Am6   G   D6  D
Em   Am6   G   D6  D  Em

Can you suggest a chord for the pre-bridge, 2:57 to 3:02 in this video?

it sounds like he's doing a piano glissando (just a slow walkup/transition) from the Em to the Am6.

I don't want to post a correction cuz it could be interpreted one way or the other. But the strings/keyboard in the background to me makes it sound like an Em7 rather than a plain Em, and then when he says "Just open up your eyes", that sounds to me like it ends on a regular B chord and then adding the 7th in the next measure as the piano comes back in.

Other than that, sounds good :)
