hole in the wall

I had a power strip that I attached to my plaster wall with double sided tape, which I now really regret, because when I went to take it off, it took a big chunk of the wall with it, revealing the cement beneath. I tried to shore it up with spackle, but the wall is still uneven. Worse still, this is a rental, and I want to try and fix it before my lease is up so I don't have the land lord charge me a lot of money for something I could fix myself. Are there any ideas to fix this wall? Thanks for your help.

Plaster repair does not have to be difficult. I would suggest using adhesives to stablize the plaster onto the cement then in-fill with a bagged structo-lite plaster. http://www.pbs.org/thisoldhouse/home/
