Best way to remove marble tiles?

Got these thick puppies. Is the method the same as if they were ceramic or porcelin - just get a hammer and chisel ? Tia

Can't tell from the photo, but what's that beige edge? MDF or the side of the tile? Either way, it's not marble, just regular ceramic/porcelain.

Crowbar if you want to make minimum mess and hopefully they'll pop off if the installer didn't use great thinset. Otherwise, smash them up with a hammer and clean up the mess.

So actually the beige is all grout. You can see the thickness of the tile at the bottom used as a baseboard. You sure that's not marble?

It's irrelevant whether it's marble or ceramic or porcelain etc.

Smash/pry/pneumatic hammer. No magic to this.
