The data X,Y must have been previously calculated from some raw data, say a thresholded figure, it is from that data you can easily calculate centroids with regionprops

Depends on what you have. If you have just arbitrary (x,y) data gotten somehow, like through assignment, then you can create a polyshape with the polyshape() function, and then use centroid(), like @David Hill showed.
If you have a binary image (like @Constantino Carlos Reyes-Aldasoro assumed -- say from thresholding), and want the centroid of each region, you can use regionprops():
props = regionprops(binaryImage, 'Centroid');
xyCentroids = vertcat(props.Centroid)
