In this paper, we reconstruct matter power spectrum of a cosmological model in which coupled scalar field acts as dark energy. The coupled scalar field (CSF) dark energy we propose here is a generalized model of quintessence, k-essence or phantom coupled to dark matter (non-baryonic matter) via a coupling constant. The existence of coupling between dark energy and matter allows energy to transfer between them, which may give rise to different observational signatures, especially at perturbation level, including matter power spectrum. In this work, through analytical exploration we studied that possible signature in matter power spectrum that maybe induced by this mode.
