> Really? I thought it sounds more like a tribute to Holsts Mars.

Listen to the ending (last like 20 seconds) of "Imperial Attack" (available on the 1997 RCA and 2004 Sony Classical Recordings). It ends with soft tremolo high strings and alternating harp glissandos (not celesta, my mistake). But regardless, it gives a feeling of parts of Holst's Neptune.
