On diesel engines it is recommended they be replaced every 30,000kms. This is because in diesel engines they can develop an alge build which if unchecked can block the filter. Once your filter starts to become blocked you can experience a hesitation or stutter.

The timing belt is a vital component of the vehicles engine, it connects and synchronizes the cam shaft with the crank shaft. If unchecked and not replaced, the teeth can become torn/worn off belt which will cause the valves to stop moving which can result in destruction of the engine.
As timing belts are made from rubber, over time they will naturally degrade and perish. This process can be expedited by heat, cold and also due to contamination from fluids such as engine oil.
Usually these are replaced when the timing belt is replaced, on some cars they are usually behind the timing belt or driven by the timing belt. They are a wearing item, and if not replaced at scheduled intervals they can fail causing serious problems with your engine.
