This is exactly what Chris Martin plays on this YouTube-Video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkMGf2_NKvs&feature=related

Tune up the high E-string to F, then play:
   D   Bb    F   Fsus C/G
F--0----0----0----0----x---|
B-10----6----1----1----8---|
G-10----7----2----0----8---|
D-12----8----3----3----10--|
A-12----8----3----3----10--|
E--x----x----x----x----x---|

Listen to the song in the Video to find out the strumming-pattern, it's very easy.

Intro

F  Fsus

Verse 1

D          Bb                      F
Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
                    Fsus
You don't know how lovely you are.
D          Bb                  F
I had to find you, tell you I need you,
            Fsus
Tell you I set you apart.

D             Bb                       F
Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions,
            Fsus
Oh lets go back to the start.
D             Bb               F
Running in circles, Comin' in tails
             Fsus
Heads on a science apart.

Chorus

Bb     Bb                F          
Nobody said it was easy,
              Fsus
It's such a shame for us to part.
Bb     Bb                F
Nobody said it was easy,
             C/G           D           C/G
No one ever said it would be this hard.
                   F
Oh take me back to the start.

Verse 2

D            Bb                     F
I was just guessin' at numbers and figures,
             Fsus
Pulling the puzzles apart.
D              Bb                   F
Questions of science, science and progress
                 Fsus
Don't speak as loud as my heart.

D                Bb                     F
And tell me you love me, come back and haunt me
          Fsus
Oh and I rush to the start.
D           Bb               F
Runnin' in circles, Chasin' tails
        Fsus
Comin' back as we are

Chorus

Bb     Bb                F
Nobody said it was easy,
                Fsus
Oh it's such a shame for us to part.
Bb     Bb                F
Nobody said it was easy,
            C/G                       C/G
No one ever said it would be so hard.
                  F
I'm goin' back to the start.

The tuning is right and the tab quite accurate, except that Ricky doesn't mute the 6th string but instead he holds it with his thumb! So the d for example is : --0-- etc.
--10--
--10--
--12--
--12--
--10-- (thumb)
I found it quite hard to play it this way with my Ovation but this is what mr. Martin actually plays. I've seen him in other videos and he very often plays the chords this way instead of a barre chord. In this version os "The scientists" he seems to use a smaller acoustic guitar which makes it a little easier to play.. ;) Cheers from Greece!

d is fine, as very often lower case us used for minor chords and uppercase for major;-)
There should be a correction to the C, which should be
--x--
--8--
--9--
--10--
--10--
--x--
