My old shop teacher once started the car with the plug out and while it will run on only 3 cylinders it might blow the peice out of the plug hole. Just be careful.

If that or a long pair of tweezers doesn't work, you may have to take off the head

Try to make some type of funnel or tube that is about the size of the plug hole, then attach a shop vac to it to try & suck it out of the cylinder

how much & how big were the pieces, if it was just tiny bits then cranking it will blow it out , if its chunks it will eventually crumble and blow out the exhaust.
