The one extra part appears to be the pressure contact plate of antenna cap, that has screw hole for the top screw of the battery connector.

The part on the left is a rubber bumper guard that goes alon the top edge of the motherboard to protect the LCD and digitizer cables from rubbing the edge of the board. It is not necessary to reinstall it but it is a good idea to because it is added protection and also takes some play out of the flex cables so they don't giggle around.

I can confirm the part on the left does cover the antenna cap, the one on the right I also have laying around after re-assembly.
