MAC addresses question

I'm confused about the whole MAC addressing thing. On a WAN, is it that the MAC address is included in segments and sent passed

the router and then being forwarded to the host or is it so that the MAC address does not go any further than the router and that the router

looks up the right ip address for the corresponding mac address (and if it doesn't know it, it will use ARP)?
