Coil pack failure, again??

Evening all. Had my 02 slk200 in for a major service 700 or so miles ago. Just before this it was plugged in and diagnosed as misfiring on cylinder 3. Service was done, with coil pack on cylinder 3 being replaced as well as plugs, oil, filters etc.

With no warning, it's now running dog rough again (exhibiting exactly same symptons as when it was running on 3 cyls)

I've not been and wont be able to get it plugged in for a few weeks, so won't know for certain...

But is this likely to be another coil pack issue? Or something more sinister? My mechanical knowledge is pretty poor, so any help/advice would eb appreciated! Thanks!
