ANGUS MADDISON seems to be the go-to economist when it comes to world GDP numbers. You may be interested in checking out his homepage which includes a link to an Excel spreadsheet that provides population and GDP figures for the period 1-2003 AD.
I've used his spreadsheet to create several charts of per capita GDP data you might find interesting. You can click on a chart to get a larger version.
