With the following parameters,
I am getting different answers with different tools.
H = 0.3mm
Er = 4.25
W = 0.56mm
gap = 0.35mm
With this Agilent Appcad gives 50.2 ohms. AWR Tx line
gives 47 ohms.
Following online calculator gives 78 ohms.
Don't understand the reason for this difference.

the difference is
the ground plane.
I believe that for your first calculation (AppCad
and AWR) you included the groundplane (CPW ground)
While the online
calculator is without ground plane.
you can double check the
setting thru AppCad and also AWR (CPW and CPW ground).

I'm with Jeanalmira in his opinion. As for the lower impedance
values you used -most probably- Grounded-Coplanar. While the larger
values is for the conventional coplanar waveguide -without lower ground
Kindly check this online applet, it is for conventional
