The issue here is because of the Z literal on the date. You can handle it in the below expression

${start_date:replaceAll("Z$", "+0000"):toDate("yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss.SSSZ"):toNumber():plus(300000):toDate():format("yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss.SSSZ"):replace("+0000","Z")}

Refer the Java Date Format specs here.
