Well, you've just defined it above. So, what do you mean by "create" it? If you mean plot it, then at the MATLAB command line type:
doc polar
You may also want to look at:
doc cart2pol doc pol2cart
or some of the others at the bottom of the help document in the "See also" section.
You might also search the MATLAB FEX at:
<<http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/index?utf8=%E2%9C%93&term=cylinder>>
There are programs for "plot a cylinder" and "draw a cylinder" to name a few.
