I didn't make it!
If you do not like spoilers, please do not read this thread. If you want to figure these awesome puzzles out by yourself, [COLOR=Red]PLEASE DO NOT READ THIS THREAD[/COLOR].
So, you want to discover the secrets of the Infinite Empire, do you? We understand. Here is a nearly complete list of datacrons (and shards) in Star Wars: The Old Republic, to aid you in your quest. Please keep in mind this list has been compiled during the Beta Weekends, so locations and matrix combinations may change during the game's launch. Enjoy!
Matrix cubes can be equipped into your "Relics" slot. These relics give you a permanent boost in stats to your character, unlike the relics you purchase at the vendors, or ones that drop in the game.
To make a Matrix cube, gather three colored shards and head to the Assembler on your capital planet. For Imperials the Assembler is in a cave to the far West of the Dromund Kass world map, due south of the "Dark Temple". For Republic players the Assembler is opposite of the "Enemies of the Republic" phase in the Jedi Temple.
Place the three color shards into the Assembler in whatever order you desire using the color sequence guide above. If you make the wrong cube you must purchase a "Reconfigured Disassembler Core" from one of the two Jawa traders on Tatooine. Both Jawa traders are located in the starting cities of Tatooine (Mos Ila or Anchorhead). The cores cost 20k each.

[COLOR=Orange]Datacron Locations Alphabetized by Planet[/COLOR]
[COLOR=Plum]Alderaan[/COLOR] Note: There is a Specialty Goods vendor that sells 2 items required to get 2 datacrons on this planet (and a couple others on other planets.) She is located in the Juran Mountains. There are a lot of dotted trails on map in the southern section, look for the one that is a counter-clockwise tilted "T". She's on the south route of that path. Buy the Red Detonite Actuator and the MGGS (14k credits total.)
43 - [+Aim] Juran Mountains - West of House Alde there's a pond with an island at the north side of it. The datacron is on that island. You need to take the lift connected to the island down to it.
44 - [+Endurance] King's Pass - requires Red Detonite Actuator - inside the Ruur Kilik Burrows (south side of the map, elite area), go straight from the enterance until you see a Blast Pack. Use it.
45 - [+Presence] Galarus Valley - There is a river that runs east to west in this zone. Look for a spire-like rock formation in the river. The datacron is visible from the north side of it. Go west from here, and look along the south side of the river for a flying creature you can click (he's a good distance away.)
46 - [+Strength] - requires MGGS - Kaamos Territory- Lerantha Dam (NE corner of the map), west side of the dam. Right click the magnetic point. You can also drop down onto it from on top of the dam, but you need the MGGS anyway, so may as well use it.
47 - [+Willpower] Galarus Valley - Inside of Castle Panteer - There is a "fake door" on the south west wall of the main room that brings you upstairs. Go right and wrap around the top section.
[COLOR=Plum] Balmorra (Empire)[/COLOR] 28 - [+Aim] Markaran Plains - Okara Droid Factory - go to the Assembly Line (west most elevator) and take it down. Under the second-most south assembly line, on the west side, there is a place to drop down. Datacron is sitting on a pipe.
29 - [+Cunning] Balmorran Arms Factory - Power Center (the courtyard outside with the landing pads). Below the dock on the NE side.
30 - [Green Matrix Shard] REQUIRES 2 PEOPLE - Inside the Neebray Warehouse (where the quest "Big Guns" asks you to blow up generators) take the elevator down. Click the access panels.
31 - [+Strength] Gorinth Canyon - Far east side of the zone. South of the east-most exit to the Sundari Flatlands, there's a path that's not marked on the world map. Just keep going south.
32 - [+Willpower] Bugtown - There is a Space Chest west of town, on the other side of the broken bridge. The key for it is NE of the flight path, through the water, sold by a vendor (5000c).
[COLOR=Plum] Balmorra (Republic)[/COLOR] 53 - [+Willpower] Bugtown - There is a Space Chest west of town, on the other side of the broken bridge. The key for it is NE of the flight point, through the water, sold by a vendor (5000c).
54 - [+Endurance] Bugtown - West side of Bugtown, take the elevator down to the Colicoid Queen's Nest. On the south wall in the room with the Queen, there's a decently well hidden tunnel. Follow it around.
55 - [+Cunning] Markaran Plains - Okara Droid Factory - go to the Assembly Line (west most elevator) and take it down. Under the second-most south assembly line, on the west side, there is a place to drop down. Datacron is sitting on a pipe.
56 - [+Willpower] Gorinth Canyon - Take a speeder to the Lower Markaran Outpost, and head south to Gorinth Canyon. Right as you enter the area, veer right, and run across the pipe. follow the path, and drop down to the datacron.
57 - [+Presence] Gorinth Canyon - Far east side of the zone. South of the east-most exit to the Sundari Flatlands, there's a path that's not marked on the map. Past the boss mob Sith Lord Vardax. You can't see it until you're on top of it..
[COLOR=Plum] Belsavis[/COLOR] 68 - [+Aim] The Tomb - SW-ish there's a lava pool with a rock formation to the west of it on the map (kind of looks like an eye). On the east side of the pool there's a gap where you can jump down onto a light bridge and walk across to get the datacron. Use the teleporter behind it to get out.
69 - [+Endurance] High Security - North end of the zone there is an outcropping of rocks on the map, that kind of looks like an "L". You can enter a cave from the north side of it, datacron is at the back of it guarded by a boss.
70 - [+Presence] Max Security - NW corner there is a giant bridge, before you go across it, hang a right and hug the wall heading East until you find a gap in the rocks, hidden by a boulder. Follow the path.
71 - [Green Matrix Shard] The Tomb - Go to The Scar (it's the area covered in snow with a huge volcanic pit dividing the north and south ends) and look for little loot-able items on the ground called Rataka Energy Cores. They look like little blue datacrons. Once you have 4 of them, go east to The Tomb area and near the middle of map, there is a giant tree (It's on the map) that sits on a plateau, with a cave running through the middle of it (path running through it also on the map.) In that cave there is an elevator, take it down, put the 4 energy cores into the machine.
72 - [+Willpower] High Security - Near the middle of the map (slightly north) there is a large area that is raised an inaccessible. On the NW side of it, there is path that cuts across to the NE side (it's on the map.)

6 - [Yellow Matrix Shard] The Works - From the elevator (not the flight point), head straight until it loops around to the east and back north. There is a pipe you can jump up to in the most NE corner of this area. Follow the pipe around.
7 - [+Strength] Jedi Temple - On the upper ring, West side. It's bright red and hard to miss, so just look up.
8 - [+Presence] Old Galactic Market - you pass over this on the Taxi on the way there. The elevator directly below it is broken, use the one on the other side of the elevated area, or the ramp, to reach it.
[COLOR=Plum] Corellia[/COLOR] Note: These 2 datacrons are out of order compared to the rest of the list. I didn't number them, so don't blame me.
61 - [Green Matrix Shard] Axial Park - requires MGGS (from Alderaan) - on the south edge of the zone there is a museum with an X-Wing in it. Enter it, and hang a right to to the elevator. Take the elevator to the roof, then climb on top of the shuttle to the roof of the building. Jump down on the East side, and go across the roof until you can see the magnetic patch across from you (it's pretty far away.) Walk into the building.

19 - [+Strength] Inside the spaceport, at the south end, take the elevator to Docking Bay D-61. From the upper platform, drop down onto the pipes running above the datacron, which is located on top of a pile of boxes.
20 - [+Endurance] North of Lord Garath's estate (south of the wall, SW side) there is an opening in the cliff face you can run through.
21 - [+Presence] Follow the dotted trail South of the spaceport. At the end of the path on the map, veer SE and follow the path around.
22 - [+Cunning] Head West out of Kaas City, and past the area with the malfunctioning robots. Once you reach the dirt road go NW. You will see a metal ramp which heads down a cliff across from some tents (the ramp, not the elevator.) Climb on the boxes north of this ramp, and get on top of the rock formation. Follow the path, and drop down on the datacron.
[COLOR=Plum] Hoth[/COLOR] 63 - [+Cunning] Starship Graveyard, in the Star of the Coruscant (south side, east wall) - Ride the elevator to the top level, and climb the boxes in the NE corner (they wrap around) until you can get on top the container that lets you jump on the containers that go back and forth across the room.

You should see some benches on the sides of the path with shelters over them. You want to get on top of the third shelter on the right side of the path (there's some shelves near it you can use to jump up). From there, jump on the floating kiosk and ride it up to the datacron. (currently broken, the shelter you jump on is not a solid object.) [/INDENT]34 - [+Cunning] High Security (Bonus Series area) - Far East wall of the zone, there are some crates you can jump up to get on a ramp to the catwalks, which lead to the Incinerator Room.
