Try pulling steering wheel hard to the left and while holding that position try starting the car. Once it is started back the car up a few feet and straighten the wheels before shutting it down.

Do you have a tilt wheel? If so you're only half the way there. The upper actuator is broken. And you got to get into the column further. As for the trick to get the cylinder in. Don't matter if you got a tilt or fixed wheel. Go to the top side of the column. About 2/3 the way down it you'll find the Ign Switch. A rod will be coming out of the top going towards the wheel area. Push it into the switch till the inst panel lights come on. That means that the Ign switch is in the 'ON' sopition. IE all the dash panel lights come on. There is a key on the tumbler that matches to a key in the ign gear. Than just incert the tumbler into the gear and turn it to lock it in.
If you got a non-tilt wheel then it sounds like the bottom of the tumbler is broken off and is still in the gear. If so do the same as above with the Ign Switch. That will align the key so you can take the broken part out and put the new Ign tumbler in.

Did you try jacking up the car at the front then wiggle the steering as you turn the key? Did you try a spare key? Spray inside the mechanism with WD40. Try putting the key in at different depths and turning.
The lock cylinder is a replace only item.

SOURCE: IGNITION AND STEERING LOCKED!

Try pressing the key down little bit while you are trying to turn it towards ignition, at the same time slowly turning the steering wheel clockwise and counter clockwise ( it's locked but it still moves a little bit), it should release the steering wheel lock. hope it helps
p.s please rate the answer if you found it helpful, i need it for my ratings, thanks!

SOURCE: 2002 mercedes benz c230 thumb arrow problems on steering wheel

Have the same issue with mine (same year and model). I've had the car for a couple years, and I regret buying it every time I get in it! Has your sunroof broken yet? It will... common problem, and a pain in the @$$ to fix yourself (major pain in the wallet to have someone else do it).
I will be opening up the steering wheel to get to the buttons and try to fix them, as soon as I can get a short enough screw-driver (hopefully it's a fairly common size, because it's impossible to look into the hole to see exactly what should be used.

Assuming there's no button to press when taking the key out, try rocking the steering wheel to left and right at the same time as trying to remove the key. Sometimes the ignition lock engages at the same time as the steering lock.
