+1 for Mr. Unix’s recommendation. If you’re in a big hurry and can’t wait for wrenches, you might be able to take a piece of hardwood a bit over a foot long and drill two holes in it and press a couple of bolts through the holes. Bolts should be as large as you have on hand that will fit through the holes in the face plate. When done it should look something like the pic below (I’d call it a spanner wrench), but all in a straight line and made from wood. Hold the spindle stationary and use your new “wrench” to remove the faceplate.

Two things to note with this: First, take care not to ding up the faceplate. Second, this won’t work if you have a work piece attached to the faceplate, so you’ll need the wrench eventually.
