use a short piece of vacuum hose to remove the loose plug .. It also helps when installing the new plugs too.

You can purchase a special socket to remove spark plugs with a rubber insert to "grab" the plug when it is loose. "Spark Plug socket"

I also use a small extension magnet to get mine out. Also use it to ease them back down In as to not damage the tip. The best is what Tom mentioned. Spark plug socket with the rubber insert.

3/8 in rubber hose and 12 in in length or your choice in length depending if there is anything in the way
