The bulb appears to be stuck.

Ok, that is not unusual, and being a round bulb it is hard to grab hold of it.

Ok, what you'll need to do is make sure the lights are off, and then gently use a pair of pliers to try and grab the bulb. Odds are the bulb glass will break but that is ok because then you will be able to pull out the remaining pieces so you can fit a new bulb in the socket.

Absolute worse case scenario is that the actual rubber socket is melted and may not release the bulb, so it that situation you would need to replace the socket and bulb together.
