Removing Backsplash without damaging drywall

Taking off the old backsplash and having it tiled. The backsplash is nailed on with finishing nails that have been sunk -- anyone know of any tricks or a good way to get those nails out and backsplash off without damaging the drywall?

Removing backsplash

Use a thin nailset or pin punch with a hammer to drive them through the wood. If it's not glued to the wall this should make it fairly easy to remove. Cut any caulking with a utility knife first.
