Yes, the capacitor looks whole but I can't tell from the photo you provided if there is anything left of the leads? If nothing is there and they broke off in the poly body, you won't be able to reattach it without possibly destroying the capacitor or ruining the board.

Surface mounted components generally have leads on the bottom. They may look like a small metallic area or tabs, and that's what gets soldered. However, the soldering process is done by machine. Actually a dipping process or surface mounting.
