This part is a bit weird and hard to tab out. 
I think Matthew wanted to bring the band's 
Onstage presents onto Absolution. This is
Probably the reason why this bit is just
Improvised. You could use the 2nd option
And just play the verse riff once. Make
Sure you use your tremolo though, if you
Decide to improvise.

Verse X2

Pre-chorus
Chorus 

Intro X 16

*HEAVY CHORUS SEQUENCE*

Play the pre-chorus and chorus as normal apart from 
Don't use palm-mute just strum really fast, using
The same chords as before. However, there is a change
In chords on the second part of the chorus which you
Play like this:
