Big piece of tooth fell out ?

To start, I had a root canal on my second top molar like 2 years ago. My dentist was supposed to put a crown on it and said he'd call me back and he never did so I just waited. 

I'm literally freaking out. The piece that fell off is blackish brown under it too?? What does this mean? Isn't the tooth supposed to already be dead? Did the root canal go wrong?

    When the root/ nerve is removed the tooth dies which is why we have a crown. This is why it broke off.

    Phone your Dentist for a crown.
