I'm not updating on my main editing desktop. But I have both FCPX 10.2.3 and 10.3 on my laptop working fine as far as I can tell. Not sure I would do this on a mission critical editing station but:

Before you download 10.3, zip your 10.2.3 version and put it in an FCP archive folder in your applications folder. Before zipping rename to "Final Cut Pro 100203" or something like that.

Then download 10.3 (this will replace your unzipped 10.2.3 version). Rename it to "Final Cut Pro 1003" or something of that sort. Zip it, and put that zip file in your FCP archive folder.

Unzip the 10.2.3 version and put it back in the root applications folder where it will coexist with 10.3.
