Support for the EarPods (or other headphone) remote is built into Spotify, but only for the Play/Pause and volume functions. There's a number of additional controls supported by the Music app such as fast forward, skip, rewind, and skip back listed in the Apple documentation.
I'd really like to have skip support for when I'm exercising and listening to the radio and a song comes on that just doesn't fit so I don't have to pull out my phone and look at it.
