Mine is pre-DPF but I believe that the glow plug light is also used to warn of high-filtration levels in the DPF that requires you to do longer journeys with higher revs.

If I remember right the glow plug light illuminating when driving means it's doing a regen and you need to keep driving at dual carriageway speeds until it goes out if it's going into limp mode before clearing it would suggest the DPF could be in a bad way.
