If I understand your post ... The plaster might be loose in your ceiling and by pressing on the spackle you caused it to crack again and fall out.

Try pressing gently on the ceiling to see if it is loose. If so, you might need to remove the loose plaster and re-plaster properly.

Best of luck ... it might get messy!

I think that 'fell down' is redundant because nothing ever 'falls up'.

Welcome.
