Hi, Charlie
Go to www.renfe.es for info.
There are many AVE trains Madrid to Seville along the day, so I don't think you'll have trouble with tickets, but why risking? Book them online, you can always exchange them for an earlier train at no extra cost.

AVE trains to Seville are very popular and many trains are fully booked. So you should get your ticket a few days in advance - you can book at Renfe counter at Madrid airport (in the arrivals hall) or use a travel agent. Ticket lines at Atocha can be long and slow-moving. You can book online but you still have to get your ticket at the station and there is only 0.50 euro saving.
Tourist class one-way fare is 72.70 euro (at the station), 108.90 euro first class, except the first train at 6.30 am which is around 10% cheaper.

If you buy the tickets on line you'll end up having to register, etc....I would get them in Spain but as soon as you arrive.

If your plans are firm you can buy AVE Tix at Barajas airport.
AVE runs hourly (dep. on the half hour) and is expensive: There are 3 time-of-day based fares (valle, llano & punto) and 3 class-of-service (Turista, Preferente & Club) based fares. At times Renfe offers discounted fares like Club Duo for two people traveling together that gives Club Service for Preferente prices.

Those, you have to buy in advance.

There's also a discount for same day return (25%, I believe)
