Always look in the stickies for basic stuff like this but here you go:

This for changing plugs and also covers the coil packs generally:

Also the official how too from the stickies:

Thank you. Do we need to disconnect the battery before we do it?

Should not need to but can't hurt either. If unsure disconnect it - as a benefit it will reset the ECU.
